Justice now means food, health, habitation.
Unequal access means unequal right.
Let us understand that as a nation
Years have changed the foci of our sight.
Freedom once applied to property.
One did with what one owned as one saw fit,
Using land or slave or factory
Ruthlessly, for what it might remit.
Today, one can't do simply as one would,
Having monetized a common good.
