you knit your chain of consequence

one terrible link at a time

and you wear it like a coat of arms

while you live in the earth

but it will bog down your soul

when death releases you

then will it be the drag that holds you back

a king of the world reduced to a humbled penitent

but you never learned sufficiently

that the least are the greatest

that humility is the only thing

that will keep you to your track onward

to other forms of repentance

and other opportunities to free yourself
