by William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

No more dams I'll make for fish
Language: English 
No more dams I'll make for fish;
  Nor fetch in firing
  At requiring;
Nor scrape trenchering, nor wash dish.
  'Ban, 'Ban, Cacaliban
  Has a new master, get a new man.
Freedom, hey-day! hey-day, freedom! freedom, hey-day, freedom!
