Only a fool
Would ever cross the line
And leave the cave.

Only to curse themselves
With the scold of the sun.

And worse yet is that
They scold the moon,
They encircle one another.

Even a fool should know,
There is no worse
Crime nor punishment
Than the embrace of another.

So, poor fool,
Return to the cave,
Where you're embraced
Only by shadows.

Repent for your crimes
And be freed by the shackles
Which, though they cut deep
Hurt only one.
