The Revolution by John (“Jake”) Cosmos Aller

The revolution is ecstasy
And will come over and over again

Until the red roses of the moon
Grow above the purple grass of Mars

While the zipples
Fly above

Eating the wimples of Tanzania
And the Sight of Beethoven’s symphony

Fills my ears
Climbing up above the yellow hills

And purple clefts of Pluto
The god cries out

No
Revealing the utter contempt
That the dead has for the living

My mind is lost
Blown up inside a rifle

As I drink the blood of the newly dead
While swimming in green scum
Above the hills of Tanzania
