Revolution? WTF?

Once upon a time in a distant land, a young WO2 created his vision of the End Days - a glorious moment when all civilians are swept away and the political arrseholes in Whitehall are put to the sword.

'When the revolution comes' is a phrase murmured more than shouted, or even spoken too loudly. One never knows who may be listening. Here is his vision:

When The Revolution Comes

When the revolution comes When the revolution comes
When the revolution comes some of us will probably catch it on JADOCS
with scran hanging from our mouths
You'll know its revolution cause there won't be no pointless emails

When the revolution comes
When the revolution comes
QMs are gonna split the scene with the oil and lubes
stuck in their back pockets
Skiving wont be so funny then and all the wasters will quit their
noddin and wake up when the revolution comes

When the revolution comes
Transit cops will be crushed by the trains after losing their guns and
blood will run through the streets of Whitehall drowning anything
without substance when the revolution comes

When the revolution comes
When the revolution comes
Our pearly white teeth froth the mouths that speak of revolution
without reverence
The cost of revolution is 360 degrees understand the cycle that never
ends
Understand the beginning to be the end and nothing is in between
but space and time that I make or you make to relate or not to relate
to the world outside my mind your mind
Speak not of revolution until you are ready to eat rats to survive

When the revolution comes
When the revolution comes
When the revolution comes guns and rifles will be taking the place of
poems and essays. Staff College will become a fort supplying the
revolutionaries with food and arms when the revolution comes

When the revolution comes
Civvy death will froth the walls of museums and churches breaking
the lies and indifference that enslaved us when the revolution comes

When the revolution comes Jesus Christ is gonna be standing on the
junction of Whitehall and Parliament Square trying to catch the first Landrover
out of London when the revolution comes
When the revolution comes
NAAFI will give away free food and smokes to anyone
they see in green skin
Brave poets will write the definitive history of the rest of the World
wearing a blue helmet when the revolution comes

When the revolution comes soldiers gone be trying to hide their identity
and civvy blood shall flow

When the revolution comes
When the revolution comes
When the revolution comes
But until then you know and I know soldiers will party and bullshit
and party and bullshit and party and bullshit and party and bullshit
and party...


Some might even die before the revolution comes.

In other words...

...we don't deserve our leadership, and this country doesn't deserve us.
