Thames and Ohio

Why should I care for the men of Thames    
Or the cheating waves of charter'd streams    
Or shrink at the little blasts of fear    
That the hireling blows into my ear?  
Though born on the cheating banks of Thames  
Though his waters bathed my infant limbs    
The Ohio shall wash his stains from me  
I was born a slave but I go to be free.   
William Blake (1757-1827)
