Freedom Founders

One learns they knew of no other way, As pages of time unfold, Than for kings to rule and others obey And to worship as they were told.

A few by birth took most of the best, Like land and learning for the fullness of life, Leaving the many to vie for the rest, Strive to survive, bear the brunt of any strife.

Now, the people had been loyal To their king across the sea, They paid his taxes royal On their goods and wares and tea.
