The Chain's Course|
Todd A. Pownell
The first clinks of the chain rattle out an unheard freedom
The original birth was the Romantic Alive, Free, Seeing, Giving and Loving
The Romantic gave rise to the Idealist Acknowledged, Linked, Writing, Stating and Cherishing
From the Idealist came the Puritan Affirmed, Chained, Authoring, Declaring and Dutiful
The Puritan in turn created the Hypocrite Dead, Enslaved, Blinded, Ruling and Hating
And from a single Hypocrite; arise masses of Cynics Confused, Aimless, Dizzy, Demeaning and Humorous
Extracted from the Cynics chaos, flows the organized Intellectual Analytical, Dragged, Thinking, Categorizing and Admiring.
Yet as the Intellectual tires, the Romantic is born again Alive, Free, Seeing, Giving and Loving.
And My Bike stays Upright as I "Cycle" forward and around
Oh let my ride end as I began; in Romantic pedaling And let nothing stick in my spokes, As the chain runs its course.
