Ideas or Weapons?

True power grows out of the barrel of a gun.
A gun is no more than a mortal weapon.
So what power grows from an immortal idea?
Marx and Engels are long gone from this Earth,
Yet still they hold sway with billions worldwide.
A gun brings temporary stability,
An idea brings permanent solidarity.

So when you bring me to trial,
I shall have only this to say.

Shoot, coward, for I am but a man.
The Revolution will live on.
