Soon or late the day is coming, Tyrant Man shall be o'erthrown, And the fruitful fields of England Shall be trod by beasts alone.
Rings shall vanish from our noses, And the harness from our back, Bit and spur shall rust forever, Cruel whips shall no more crack.
Riches more than mind can picture, Wheat and barley, oats and hay, Clover, beans, and mangel-wurzels, Shall be ours upon that day.
Bright will shine the fields of England, Purer shall its water be, Sweeter yet shall blow its breezes On the day that sets us free.
For that day we all must labour, Though we die before it break; Cows and horses, geese and turkeys, All must toils for freedom's sake.
Beasts of England, beasts of Ireland, Beasts of every land and clime, Hearken well and spread my tidings Of the golden future time. ― George Orwell, Animal Farm
Great little book. Says a lot in few pages...
I read it when I was about 10 and it, along with Lord of the Flies, helped form a lot of my early social/political thoughts.
It sounds like a typical broadcast from CNN.
I remember reading that in the sixth grade, and singing “Beasts of England” to the tune of “Darling Clementine” LOL.
Great little book.
