All soldiers of the lower ranks unite
put away your guns, refuse to fight,
you're only protecting the Officer's money
so they can continue to gorge on milk and honey.
These rulers sit in marble halls,
scratching their tiny in-bred balls, while you,
shed your blood for King and Country,
give half your corn to the landed gentry.
Place your weapons on a mountain-high fire,
incinerate destruction on that peaceful pyre.
Then sit and watch your rulers plight...

as all soldiers of the lower ranks unite.

It Ain't Over Til Its Over....
Well, if poets ruled, we could all just sit around and write poetry that no one would read. Nice thought, but pretty boring.

I reality, if we take a serious look at life and the pursuit of "FREEDOM" we have to recognize that nothing happened after WWII, WWI, Civil War, Revolutionary War, French Revolution, etc etc etc, until UPHEAVAL. The elite and controllers had to be defeated by force, warfare, destruction and UPHEAVAL.

The old and controllers HAD to be destroyed. Tossed out, defeated once and for all.

It could not happen today, because every one of those in control are telling everyone else that "Now friends, violence is not the answer..."

But I think they are sweating a little more every time they say it today...LOL

Missing the Point
I am probably missing the point...

I would have loved to have told the untouchables to piss off when I first "Joined-Up" probably would have loved to be back in civies too...

Then as I gained promotion and was dispatched to stand between rioting factions intent on killing each other...and to some extent stopping them... and loosing guys along the way..... It wasn't so much the officers but GOVERNMENT that were "out of their depth" There was an easy "No Brains" option...pull out and let the buggers sort it out themselves....

We all voted the government in and the British Army wasn't conscript

It does seem your verse would suit the Egyptian Army....since that one runs the entire show..

I think your verse could be modified to suit a number of cases ie the low paid worker..

as in

All workers that are lower paid shirk
put away your tools, refuse to work,
you're only protecting the Bosses money
so they can continue to gorge on milk and honey.
These rulers sit in marble halls,
scratching their tiny in-bred balls, while you,
works yours off for a pittance,
give half your corn to the landed gentry.
Place your tools on a mountain-high fire,
incinerate destruction on that peaceful pyre.
Then sit and watch your bosses plight...

as all workers with lower pay unite.
