I HAVE CHOSEN

I have chosen to be a slave,
A slave forever.
I was born to a race of slaves.
Those slaves are subject to no man,
Those slaves are all free people,
Those slaves are subjects of the land,
Slaves of their free will,
Blissful slaves,
Slaves through Love,
Dignified Friends,
Proud Victims of our Earth:
PEASANTS!

June 1970.

Translated by Lenora Timm
