Conflagration denied

When logic dictates
to seethe with anger and hate
the world has gone mad.

When those around seem to conspire
and aim to set the world aflame;
and power acts to play a game
to reach at its own heart's desire
though it would cast all in the fire:
Then, my friends, move, before we burn;
this vile evil we should all spurn.
Refuse the rude call to ignite,
rise up as one -- for freedom fight,
and on the foul one tables turn.

    Would the foul one know that the tables have turned?
