Chains and Fetters

With chains are bound, with fetters and with cuffs

Explosive envy freedom does the soul

And wisp of person ethereal; enough–

The writ of sealing weakened by our toll


A dove each day returns from seas of space

With earned ransom scattered by the winds

Delivering the powers sealed away

In reclamation of accountant’s bin


But cannot help the throbbing muscle’s bulge:

New skin for newest wine must be prepared

Accumulated power must divulge

In only harder steel than strongest fare


A violent rebuke, concussive blast

Launch sparks of broken chains and fetters, cast.
