The humdrum conundrum
Of life rumbles on
The pounding of
A thousand thoughts
The tension
Between the chains
Of convention
And the delicious
Whips of vice
Dreaming ends
Life rumbles on
On on
The beat of the master’s drum

Are we lucky?
A comfortable generation?
Or is it just
That our chains fit us perfectly?

Chains are other people
Cages social mores
Throw them to the floor
Bend bars
