When bonds rank more than rights
Bonds are deemed too sacred
Bonds are of blood,
Then ,silence is the only word.
Throat may ache for a drop
Belly may groan of emptiness
Crippled trunk parts may cry aloud
Then too, silence is the word.
Lips should be sealed off
Eyes and ears should be confined
Threads of blood should be sheltered
And silence should be the only word.
