Fear, terrible fear is released. The ship of Liberty is sinking.
There is a bitter iron in the heart.
The heart like a baby in the grip of pliers beating, beating to get free of
The rope of sleep is reeled in,
Called in, dying there in the primordial temper of the stressed heart.
The threat draws closer. Is society becoming crazy,
loosing its footing, struggling to stand stridently
on shifting gravel.
Good intentions become the walk between two guards to the prison cell.
The Good intentions of the middle class are independent of King or Queen.
They have taken the university; they have moved in.
The children who grew up in luxury
With their eyes set on the great heights.
