I am the Common Man.
I am the brute and the slave.
I am the fool, the despised,
From the cradle to the grave.

I am the hewer of coal.
I am the tiller of soil.
I am serf of the seas,
Born to bear and to toil.

I am the builder of halls.
I am the dweller of slums.
I am the filth and the scourge
When winter's depression comes.

I am the fighter of wars.
I am the killer of men,
Not for a day or an age,
But again and again and again.

I am the Common Man,
But, Masters of mine, take heed,
For you have put into my head
Oh! Many a wicked deed.
