WHAT MIGHT BE DONE,
By Charles Lamb
What might be done if men were
What glorious deeds, my suffering
Would they unite
In love and right
And cease their scorn of one another!
Oppression's heart might be imbued
With kindling drops of loving kind
ness, And knowledge pour
From shore to shore
Light on the eyes of mental blind
ness. All slavery, warfare, lies and wrongs,
All vice and crime might die to
gether; And wine and corn, '
To each man born,
Be free as warmth in summer
The deepest sunk in guilt and sorrow,
The meanest wretch that ever trod,
Might stand erect
And share the teeming world to
morrow. What might be done? This might
And more than this, my suffering
More than the tongue
Ever said or sung
If men were wise and loved each
