Times when …

There were times when I believed

But now – I see – ‘cos in truth

I was supposed to.

And nothing that happened 

Was done for my happiness:

It was done – instead – 

To teach me fine lesson.

And so the lesson has been taught 

And you have made a free man

Out of the ought and bought and

Sought, 

And the would quite bad

And sadly read.

And I am now so free

That I feel 

Quite certain-

Like 

That to live with other close

Means such a sacrifice this strong 

I no longer miss its presence, 

Nor long to believe 

What – in other 

Time – was used

I guess you’d fairly claim

To release me

From my future grave.
