The Crack, in The Bell, of Freedom
( for whom, The Knell, tolls )
in The Middle of the Night,
yes, It came, without a Sound,
It came while We were sleeping,
yes, It came with no one around . . .
It came, while We were fighting,
yes, It came, for We were Fools,
It came, while We were weeping,
for We had broken, All The Rules . . .
It came, as His Blood was spilled,
yes, It came, so in Heaven’s Name,
It came, when Our Choice was made,
because, It came, to reveal, Our Shame . . .
