Which shall come ahead?

WHICH SHALL COME AHEAD?
By Jose Maria Sison

Which shall come ahead?
The blazing of forests,
The thawing of the icebergs,
The rise of the oceans,
The drowning of cities,
The parching of the land,
The whimpering death?

Which shall come ahead?
Sudden fright at the big bang,
Mushrooms in the sky,
Too much light in a trice,
Before the endless night
Under the seamless fog,
The freezing of the land?

Which shall come ahead?
The endless rule and lure of greed,
The cycles of boom and bust,
The stolen flow of blood and sweat,
The ruin of the greenscape,
Or the breaking of chains
To end myths of the endless?

Which shall come ahead?
The rise of the human spirit,
The liberation of the oppressed,
To smite the vile sources
Of greed, wars and plunder
To end the absurd choice
Of disaster to doom all classes?
