once a beautiful man
called out a precious dream
like a liberating wand,
"Free at last, free at last,
thank God a' mighty
we're free at last!" -
and millions did respond.

Though I wonder how well
everyone seems to know
from ghetto Earth
death alone sets free
these embodied souls
to whatever essence
there will certainly be
in eternity beyond.
