Wolf Pacts

How will it be to have freed the weak
to stand as their sword, to carry their shield
how will it be to see their tremble revealed. 
Imperialist power court with cheek
the downtrodden fools whose wealth they all seek.
America, Russia, China concealed
that their help came with poisoned wells and fields 
that the air can burn, the fish die in creeks
ask 'Nam how freedom was bought and brought.
Go to Tibet, feel the Communist zeal 
the temples they have felled make farmyard walls.
Have the strong helped the weak, power's begot
pain, let the weak grow strong, let them not kneel,
if you ask for help, the wolf hears your calls.

    it is good to see someone take a stand without hesitation or pause..a poem that reveals your heart..I welcome this poem and thank you for it...I have written many such poems and at times felt like a lone wolf crying out in the wilderness, though I have only posted one such as this on this site...Glad you posted it
