Children of da Revolution!

Click here to listen to the song… poem was written at London Stansted Airport for Jeannine who gave me 5£ which means that I’ve started to earn money with my poetry! It’s a MILESTONE! It is not the amount of money that counts! It’s just the fact that somebody helped me and I could pay my food with words! Thank you! Jeannine! You gave me more than you know!



Where are all the children of the revolution?

Where do they work? In which institution?

Why is all over the world such a confusion?

When will they be born? The children of the revolution?


Children grown-up without fear

Of luggage which might explode

Children with an open mind

for all beings of any kind

Freedom, brotherliness and equality

without any bank-code


When will they replace the idiots in charge*?

When is the spring-revolution? Is it in March?

It is going to happen – later or sooner

Hopefully before my funeral


Call any God that you know

And ask him to stop

This unfair political game

Ask him to stop this hypocritical show

Ask him to remove all who are insane

But do not blame him!

You’ve got to vote and if you don’tit is a sin!


Well, why the hell should we care?

The auto-destructive nature of human kind

Can not be seen by any creature

To sum it up: LIFE IS UNFAIR



*Definition of a politician: smooth, shining, and deceitful as thin ice!


Must We Call a Revolution for Children?

Moderated by Peter Brey, Secretary-General, Terre des hommes Foundation, Switzerland

Globalization now means a drive towards “flexibility” and an ever cheaper workforce. Extreme forms of exploitation are being pushed down the supply chain and concentrated in the developing economies. Child trafficking and labour exploitation are consequences as children cannot defend themselves. In absolute terms, far more children are being exploited than ever before.

1) Are our societies unconsciously promoting modern forms of slavery and the exploitation of children?

2) Are efforts by governments and companies to stop exploitation simply a window-dressing exercise to protect reputations?

3) Why are the losers in the process of globalization simply ignored?

A revolution by collaborative consumption?

Why not?

  4. “In the present circumstances, no one can afford to assume that someone else will solve their problems. Every individual has a responsibility to help guide our global family in the right direction. Good wishes are not sufficient; we must become actively engaged.”
