I Had A Dream Of Molten Steel (Villanelle)

I had a dream of molten steel
weapons to liquid by the fire of humanity
and all the people awoke to what is real

the air was charged with an electric feel
as the dancing masses cast off their misery
I had a dream of molten steel

the night aglowโ€”the scene surreal
together they poured from the foundry
and all the people awoke to what is real

a fevered wind blew as metals congeal
new hope forged by the fire of humanity
I had a dream of molten steel

the hands of the many toiled with euphoric zeal
no more rich, no more poor, no bourgeoisie
and all the people awoke to what is real

on that day the pact was sealed
that violence would no longer be their reality
I had a dream of molten steal
and all the people awoke to what is real
