We British Workmen

We British Workmen

We British workmen, so they say,
Are free; and who can doubt it?
For, if we do not like our pay,
We’re free—to go without it.

Unlike the helpless negro slave.
Our tyrant-driven brother,
If one employer prove a knave,
We’re free—to find another.

H. S. Salt

The Labour Leader, May 26, 1894, p. 5
