Chain Gang

She awoke amidst a haze

not knowing from whence she came

she cried and then she prayed

Jane stopped

then broke the chain.


He spoke and cursed my name

spewed forth then tried to explain

he halted, then went insane

Chris stopped

then broke the chain.


She proposed, then spoke profane

knew the truth, lied just the same

wanted kids who bore my name

Dawn stopped

then broke the chain.


I had thought that I portrayed

a man correct and not inane,

have loved and lost, blown out the flame

but I won't stop

and break the chain.
