„Gods of the World! Their mouths are dumb!
Your guns have spoken and they are dust.“

—  Voltairine de Cleyre American anarchist writer and feminist 1866 - 1912

"Written-In-Red" Stanza 2
Contexto: Gods of the World! Their mouths are dumb!
Your guns have spoken and they are dust.
But the shrouded Living, whose hearts were numb,
have felt the beat of a wakening drum
Within them sounding — the Dead men’s tongue —
Calling: "Smite off the ancient rust!"
Have beheld "Resurrexit," the word of the Dead,
Written-in-red.

„How will it be with kingdoms and with kings —
With those who shaped him to the thing he is —
When this dumb Terror shall rise to judge the world.
After the silence of the centuries?“

—  Edwin Markham American poet 1852 - 1940

The Man with the Hoe and Other Poems (1899), The Man With the Hoe (1898)
Contexto: O masters, lords and rulers in all lands
How will the Future reckon with this Man?
How answer his brute question in that hour
When whirlwinds of rebellion shake all shores?
How will it be with kingdoms and with kings —
With those who shaped him to the thing he is —
When this dumb Terror shall rise to judge the world.
After the silence of the centuries?
