Song to the Men of England
Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792 -- 1822)
Men of England, wherefore plough
For the lords who lay ye low?
Wherefore weave with toil and care
The rich robes your tyrants wear?
Wherefore feed, and clothe ,and save,
From the cradle to the grave,
Those ungrateful drones who would
Drain your sweat-----nay, drink your blood?
Wherefore,Bees of England, forge
Many a weapon, chain, and scourge,
That these stingless drones may spoil
The forced produce of your toil?
