If there was anything resembling justice on this little blue dot the aformentioned people would have been Roman galley slaves. But there isn’t and they weren’t.
These verses have no place in the current zeitgeist:
As I went walking, I saw a sign there,
And on the sign there, It said “no trespassing.”
But on the other side, it didn't say nothing!
That side was made for you and me.
In the squares of the city, In the shadow of a steeple;
By the relief office, I'd seen my people.
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking,
Is this land made for you and me?
