Peasant (song lyrics)

Plower of the field,
Slave of nobility,
Man-tool trapped in toil,
Sweating deformity.
Barefoot.
Gruel-fed.
Stumbling.
Peasant! Peasant! Peasant! Peasant!

Baseborn son of Ham,
Ancient beast of burden,
Pagan subhuman,
Beware his evil eye.
Wicked.
Surly.
Stinking.
Peasant! Peasant! Peasant! Peasant!

Salt of the earth,
Manual creator,
Pillar of the world,
Essential agency.
Ruddy.
Natural.
Happy.
Peasant! Peasant! Peasant! Peasant!
