A man, A brother

A man be enslaved, another not.
A man will work so another need not.
One man will earn his keep, the other will not.
Forced be one to feed the other.
From the ability of the one for the needs of the other,
Each are dependent, the Master and slave.

The food that they eat they get from the other.
One from the kindness that the heart will provide,
The other from the hardness from the labor that provides.
Tis the life of the enslaved, the life of the Master.

The socialist seeks his freedom,
But soon finds that he be ever enslaved.
For on the table will be the fruit of his labor,
But the table be not his but the table of another.
Not a man he be nor will he be a brother.
A Master he did not seek, but a Master he will feed.
