I was cleaning up today when I came accross the following from my archives.

Sermons of my fight

The songs of my heart
Sound like profanities
To the master's ears

As the means of his life
Are all fruits of my work

The trends of my thought
Spell doom to my master's sort

As the beaten scars on my back
Show the badges of his worth

The tears of his joy
Make gore of my hopes
So the fright of his life
Shall be the fire of my light
And the sermons of my fight

With iron, but without fetters
When fists will hoist down all scepters
and men shall be borned again
To mould the earth anew
So the river can flow

By Ous (Copyright GNL - issue 3/4-88)
