Thomas Paine - The Emancipator
Thomas Paine - shall we see a man like him again?
A messenger for rudiments of freedom, our thane.
An eighteenth century fighter - diligent,
A life well spent, bent on denting tyranny.
His "Commonsense" and "Rights of Man"
are paragons to span the human race -
His lament for banishment of despots,
A signal from the commonplace.
His blazon stature stands for right
with arms outstretched beside the river Thet.
His light for all - a golden glow by day
