Be you anything from king to baker of cakes / You’re a vegetable unless you’re free / Such a little word, but oh, the difference it makes! / It’s the necessary essence of democracy / It’s the thing that every slave should have the right to be / And I soon will have the right to buy a slave for me… / Can you see him? / Well, I’ll free him!

- - Stephen Sondheim, “Free,” A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
