Every Man A King

Timothy Thomas Fortune

From hill to hill let Freedom ring!
Let tyrants bend the knee!
Why should the people have a king,
When every man a king should be!

There is no law, save law of right!
All other law is made
By force of conquest, brutal might,
The sovereign masses to degrade.

Float high the standard of the free!
Loud let the welkin ring!
Each man within himself should be
No less a man than is a king.
