There hangs in many homes an iron trap which binds children and gives comfort to men.
Man made it for man and man swore by it and it was made of his great fear and doubt.
It was no longer forever which seduced him, but the power of knowledge.
For he was no longer governed by the lights in the sky.
He found no treasure in the vast expanse around him.
But rather the measure of what he could give or take.
He fell madly in love with it and looked upon it frequently and died at precisely 11:52 PM.
There hangs in many homes a wooden thing which once bound men and freed children.
