Beasts of Greece, Third Piece


First Piece by Shelley – The Masque of Anarchy

Men of England, heirs of Glory
Heroes of unwritten story,
Nurslings of one mighty Mother,
Hopes of her, and one another!

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

Second Piece by Orwell – Animal Farm

Beasts of England, Beasts of Ireland,
Beasts of every land and clime,
Hearken to my joyful tidings
Of the Golden future time.

Soon or late the day is coming,
Tyrant Man shall be o’erthrown,
And the fruitful fields of England
Shall be trod by beasts alone.

Third Piece

Beast of Greece, Beasts of Cyprus
Beasts of every mount and sea
Cease your irksome murmur
Fathom at last your torpor
And raise your frayed hackles
For you’re still in hefty shackles

Dreams of rebel are antique
Perpetual lesson to the weak
Mankind is not too oppressive
Your hard work is just not impressive
Agents of truth thus have spoken
Past promises must not be broken

Days pass and nights fly
Not much time until we die
No perdition, no redemption
Don’t be fouled by misconception
Here is the only chance to shine
Whilst your footprints intertwine

Ancient glory has long dwindled
But let the weary spirit be rekindled
Unleash the mighty dinosaur in you
And eye man’s worst fear become true
‘Cause the Earth belongs to monsters
Not to a bunch of human mobsters

Beast of Greece, Beasts of Cyprus
Beasts of every mount and sea
Even the pets of bourgeoisie
Υour reign soon will be

Dedicated to my little beast, Michael
