Kol ha-Kavod to the youth and people of Egypt and Tunisia!

 

Any system you contrive without us

     will be brought down

We warned you before

     and nothing that you built has stood

Hear it as you lean over your blueprint

     Hear it once again:

Any system you contrive without us

     will be brought down.

You have your drugs

You have your guns

You have your Pyramids

     your Pentagons

With all your grass and bullets

     you cannot hunt us any more

All that we disclose of ourselves forever

     is this warning

Nothing that you built has stood

Any system you contrive without us

     will be brought down.

 

          -"The Energy of Slaves," Leonard Cohen, 1972
