The Statue of Liberty was made in France by Marc Woodward

Two Frenchman made
‘Liberty enlightening the world’
her right hand raised
with a blazing torch.
At her feet: broken chains.
Below her left arm: a tablet of laws.
Not a Bible
Not a Koran
Not a Torah.

Liberty in this sad night
show us rational law
shine your freedom light
and help cast off
all chains of hatred,
poverty, religion and fear.

I call you in the names of Eiffel, Bartholdi,
and all proud French people non-secular and free.
