Those who have power and no pity,
Who would avenge the right by sword,
And profit from justice,
And do well by doing good;

Those who would gain by others' grief
In the name of freedom,
And allocate the Earth's abundance to themselves,
And allow the marketplace to starve children;

And those who would see such things happen and do nothing:

The mark of Cain is on them,
And on their followers,
And on their generations.
