All for naught? A different tack today.

And the people shouted. “Let us be free! Let us be free!”

And the masters responded. “Tis not for us to grant you these freedoms.”

And the people repeated. “Let us be free! Let us be free!”

And the masters responded. “Granting freedoms to you means taking freedoms from others.”

And the people shouted. “Others abuse their freedoms, let us be free! Let us be free.”

And the masters responded. “We shall pause a bit and give much thought to your request.”

And then,the holy ones came.

And the holy ones said. “The word is not to be broken.”

And the people said. “The word is subjective, let us be free! Let us be free!”

And the masters responded. “Oh holy ones, your will shall be done.”

And the people shouted. “Let us be free! Let us be free!”
