Rabble rousers
















Oh rabble rousers,
Arouse my soul
From this unbidden sleep.
Long forgotten consciousness
Needs a rude awakening
It seems lost
Since eternity.

Oh rabble rousers,
Break the walls,
The unwanted fences,
Cemented with fear
Rearrange my torrid emotions!
It lies in disarray,
Since eternity.

Oh rabble rousers,
While you are at it,
Can you please,
Find my voice
Make it heard above the noise.
Validate my existence
It lies in wait
Since eternity.

I really like the repetition of "Oh, rabble rousers." It makes a good device to forward the poem. I like what you've done here.

Loved this!!

Interesting use of the idea of a rabble rouser. The negative connotation is the easier one people jump to.
