Free Yourself - Poem by Richard Jarboe

Let's all dig a hole,
And throw them chains below.

There's a little bit of slave in every one of us
Junkie, you know it's true,
A little bit of slave in every one of us,
Drunkard, I'm talking to you.

There once was a slave
Toussaint L' Overture
He liberated Haiti.
And took down the cruel.

He led the first slave rebellion
Victors over England and France
Don't tell me your trouble,
We all got a chance.

There's a little bit of slave in every one of us,
Is it your turn to rise?
Only you can bury your chains
And free yourself from lies.

Dig it?
