人人都是自由的

“在法律面前,所有人都是自由平等的!”这是疲倦的、似是而非的、说谎的鹦鹉的叫声。所有的人都是自由的?挨饿或叹息;但很少有人能以埃及为食?年代玉米。在那里辛勤劳作的奴隶,汗流浃背;那里的婴儿因饥饿而哭泣;亲爱的上帝!原谅我们的谎言?“所有人都是自由的!” That man may laugh while this must mourn; One?s heir to honour, one to scorn? Were they born free? Were you? Was I? No! Not when born, but when they die And of their robes?or rags?are shorn, All men are free!
