  Many great ones through the   ages
Have att  ained to e  arthly p  ower
Yet they a  ll had their h  our
As we w  itnessed beh  ind our c  ages.
Sad it i  s when f  ate as fa  iled to speed them.
But for u  s whose j  ob it is   to feed them,
Whether this on  e's high or that one l  ow
The load on our sh  oulders al  ways g  row.
Still the m  illwheel turns
It   turns fore  ver
Though what is upp  ermost
  Remains not   so.
The wa  ter underneath
In   vain ende  avor,
Does the w  ork but a  lways stays be  low.
Many are different masters
Who have ruled us in their day
Eagles, hyenas and tigers
Even swine have had their say.
Wich of them was better than the others ?
Every boot's the copy of its brother.
Do you understand what's here intended ?
We don't need no masters, we want all mastery ended.
And they beat their heads
Till they are bloody
scrambling after booty.
Everyone calls the other "rascal"
And himself "the slave of duty".
Time has come away to speed them.
Each in lasting conflict with its brother.
Only our will that we won't feed them
Brings them to peace with one another.
