Для полной цитаты, apart from chains on feet. А так же

From The Devil's Dictionary (1881-1906) [devil]:

  FREEDOM, n.  Exemption from the stress of authority in a beggarly half
  dozen of restraint's infinite multitude of methods.  A political
  condition that every nation supposes itself to enjoy in virtual
  monopoly.  Liberty.  The distinction between freedom and liberty is
  not accurately known; naturalists have never been able to find a
  living specimen of either.

      Freedom, as every schoolboy knows,
          Once shrieked as Kosciusko fell;
      On every wind, indeed, that blows
              I hear her yell.

      She screams whenever monarchs meet,
          And parliaments as well,
      To bind the chains about her feet
              And toll her knell.

      And when the sovereign people cast
          The votes they cannot spell,
      Upon the pestilential blast
              Her clamors swell.

      For all to whom the power's given
          To sway or to compel,
      Among themselves apportion Heaven
              And give her Hell.
