Rapture of the Peasants

You are a coward
You who hide behind the castle curtains
You who cower beneath the master’s bed
You who tremble inside the queen’s closet
You who clean up after the princes’ mess

You are ignorant
You who disown the riches of this realm
You who deny the wishes of the king
You who reject the gold of the noble
You who refuse the promise of the land

You will conquer all
You who see through the royals’ transgressions
You who demand the birthright of the poor
You who ask for none less than what’s deserved
You who lead all the brave and all the wise

You are a coward and you are ignorant
