The Cumulus is Rising .........

A Rodgers Ranger~ Revolutionary War

What was it the Gods meant mindfull of that
which you toll
Don't lose the focus or create what
you cannot control

There is no control of a nation when
freedoms have been denied
The rise and fall of the Romans
has already been tried

At long last .....the nightmare comes
again ......with no apparent solution
As the farmer stares at his plow
and recalls the revolution

Cutting ...bending .....pounding the
blacksmith rings in echoes
Shaping plows into swords again amid
his childrens hunger throws

Once of the past and now so obvious again
the kings and courts out of hand
Again the rights and harmony are doomed
as is peace in our land

The landllords disguised as leaders
the kings and congress a scam
But again the poor soldier in rags......
will end the beating down of man
