in chains to serfs tied to the soil,
Such was the
arrangement down the ages,
were freed to work for wages,

has become a market place, where
Nine out of
ten only have labour power
To trade for
life, selling it by the hour
For much less

Those one of ten who control
of this world would take it all
could as profits have to be made.
And so, by
legal sleights of hand and stealth,
extract from workers their wealth.
