There are no supreme saviours
Neither God, nor Caesar, nor tribune.
Producers, let us save ourselves,
Decree the common salvation.
So that the thief expires,
So that the spirit be pulled from its prison,
Let us fan the forge ourselves
Strike the iron while it is hot.
The State oppresses and the law cheats.
Tax bleeds the unfortunate.
No duty is imposed on the rich;
The rights of the poor is an empty phrase.
Enough languishing in custody!
Equality wants other laws:
No rights without duties, she says,
Equally, no duties without rights.
Workers, peasants, we are
The great party of labourers.
The earth belongs only to men;
The idle will go to reside elsewhere.
How much of our flesh have they consumed?
But if these ravens, these vultures
Disappeared one of these days,
The sun will shine forever.
This is the final struggle
Let us group together, and tomorrow
Will be the human race.
All very nice and all but only really relevant to Feudalistic autocratic monarchies which no-one in their right mind would say that the UK in 2012 is. And indeed hasn't been since the 1650s. And you only have to look at how brilliant everything was under Cromwell to see how well we'd do without a Monarch.
