    Rise Third World nations!
    Rise Falkland Islands!
    Rise colonial world!
    Behead your rulers!

    Economic oppression is not a mistake

    Rise against war and torture
    Rise against the exploiters
    Rise up and take control of your resources
    Destroy your rulers

    World Systems Theory was implemented to take away you power

    Resurgence is claiming what belongs to you
    Resurgence is praxis, intervention in reality
    Resurgence is overcoming domestication
    Betray the dominant elite and dare to be labeled dangerous!

    Be so potent that they may be infuriated and make mistakes.

    Rise Freedom Rise!

    Rising high as the phoenix –
    Resurgence through the fire.
    I lie in a nest of burning sticks.
    No one shall suffocate my desire!

    Imperious am I to the flame.
    Let them lick their own wounds!
    Themselves only to blame.
    I’ll rise before the noon!

    Industrious to the end.
    Inflated as a balloon –
    With words I shall commend!
    And to FIRE I am immune.

      That’s a beautiful poem and well written and I’ve always loved the idea of the Phoenix rising. Yes, resurgence — you captured it well.
