I'Ve Travers'D All

I’ve toil’d all ov’r the earth,

looking for the real equality;

I find none but inequality.

I have also labour’d for it to come to its fullest;

lo, what I see is perpetual corruption!

That makes me ask:

‘Is folly plac’d in all high places? ’
But my humble self replies:

‘No, that must be a mistake.’

Now, I’m optimistic for man’s rights –

I’m sure they will come in our generation.
