The Last Rebellion
 
I am not dead, although
Sleeping in my coffin
With the eyes closed forever
With all those dreams of a future
 
You think I have died, like
Many others, deceived or
fighting for you down the ages
or facing your bullets instead
 
You think I should take rest
In peace to forget everything
From the fear of death
To the pain of dying…everyday
 
Now that I’m no more relevant
To cast any vote to make someone
Win, to power; or depower others
I feel relieved and free from slavery
 
I am not dead, as you like to think
I am not dead, as you have conspired
I am not dead, as you break the news
I am not dead, as you want to prove
