Come the Revolution

Come the Revolution

Chorus:
One fine day;
Come the Revolution;
When Messiah comes;
Imagine no religion:
One fine day.

Antagonist:
When hell freezes over.

Protagonist:
If you can’t say something nice.

Chorus:
“Every party needs a pooper.
Ivory intellectual
Heavy burdens,
On the People.”

None of us asked to be born.

Antagonist:
Too delicate for this world–
Stay out of the kitchen.
Open your eyes,
All ye who grasp at straws,
Who compass yourselves about with sparks.

Protagonist:
Everyone you meet is struggling;

Lend a finger to lighten the load.
The People need their cherished illusions.
Shame on you, Mr. “Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.”

Antagonist:
Who called for this trampling of the courts?
Ad Board and Ash Wednesday,
Coffee and donuts,

Scrapbooking and Bingo,
Ladies Tea and Good Friday?

Protagonist:
Trample the pastures,
Muddy the waters.
You’ve driven them away,
Pushing aside the weak and diseased.

Antagonist & Protagonist:
There are none so blind.

Chorus:
There are none so blind.
