After the Revolution

 

Queues! lines of hungry people

waiting on some bread

go to your local store

the yellow leaflet said

coupons! clutched in jealous hands

safe in pockets, vests and trouser bands

a man a maid a mother and her son

pushing worrying wondering will their time come

 

A young child cries

daddy what’s for dinner?

an old man dies

holding the hand of a sinner

a frightened girl calling to her brother

children comfort supporting each the other

the shutters are up no more bread

come back tomorrow the soldier said
