Rise Like Lions
Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number,
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you
Ye are manythey are few.

Percy Bysshe Shelly, The Mask of Anarchy

Sounds like a rallying cry to me.

2. Within the Circle A
Edited on Sun Sep-04-11 05:44 AM by undergroundpanther
is the truth...And our fangs and claws we are told to keep sheathed when those who abuse power abuse us,indeed we should rise like Lions..

Ain't no shame in being a BIG yellow cat Democrat..

Oh... Sekhmet may the mighty call for justice be heard
Come with your fiery winds
Sekhmet is in my flesh and my heart
May the furious breath of maat turn me
To a creature of precise and ethical annihilation
To crush the bodies of the hostile to life and innocence
Oh... Sekhmet you know.

You, living in obscurity, awaken.
understand the purpose of the order to stab the wicked hearts,
fearless in path of vengeance against those who cannot love
Shoot forth your seven arrows at the nsuit and watch them fall,helpless.
Throw your searing glances at the selfish ones who never stop wanting more
(in the name of Bast it is )
And may the points of your knives and kopesh be sharp as glass
cut as true as a laser beam.
Slash archon apep,tear it asunder so it can no longer choke and consume the life out of this world, dying of profit's theft and corporate cancer and psychopaths.let it all die choking on it's own blood.
Let the abusers of power, the betrayers of trust ,
haters of the unfortunate and exploiters of innocence
be trapped on the wall of my vengeance,hanging forever.
Sa Sekhem Sahu.
