Ralph Waldo Emerson Quote

“We grant no dukedoms to the few,
We hold like rights and shall;
Equal on Sunday in the pew,
On Monday in the mall.
For what avail the plough or sail,
Or land, or life, if freedom fail?”

Unfortunantly we have granted "dukedoms" to the few, they reside in the Oval office and the Congress.
