Another address to the Nobility

It all starts in a silence in the distance,
All that moves is the inner reason
He feels trapped, deceived, without true existence,
Enslaved only to mechanism.
Seduced and captured by the institution,
Indebted to constant debtors
Slavery a cage with no absolution,
Visible to a world which is weary.

The cry starts as a strangled roar of thunder,
That seems to re-split the curtain.
Remembering the liberation wonder,
That was already freely given.
The fight begins for enlightenment new,
For an original covenant.
One that it craves and is long overdue
Saturated by equality.

The revolutionary buries the living with the pain
The thread of remorse strains not breaking.
No treatment or condition that is too humane
Is without mercy to be given
Until the purpose, and comfort are gained
The wisdom shows the error of ways
But already the institution is restrained
And no one knows if there is lasting grace.

And silence once more has begun…

But here we are today, I had a cup of coffee, class was cancelled, and I have no credit on my phone to organize anything else, a free evening, courtesey of the weather!


And now, to think of something relatively insightful to write... Hmmm.. Well, as Judith and Adrian are off on sending country assingment, I am currently living in their flat, looking after the family (almost lost Felix one day, which …
