A Different Look at Freedom

One way's happiness, the other gloom. One way life, the other doom. Straight ahead a bordem lurks, Unseeable through lifes murk. Look one way and then the other. Consult with Father and with Mother. Slavery is far behind. Through the days that pass you'll find In slavery you do not choose, The jobs you do the tools you use. If only slaves wern't worked so hard, Their tired faces whipped and scarred. If only master would give a break. And not threaten like a snake. Then slavery would be the life. Without fighting, choices or strife. But without Freedom there are no slaves, So we need some people brave. To be free, to be in command, But no work others to the sand.
