BARK TO BRIGHTEN

When poverty chains you in life
And calls on need to put you in strife
Even in the chains do continue to bark
Look and see even in the blinding dark

II
When whips plant on you some aching sores
Which cease and freeze your airy pores
Never kneel to your chasing flies
Never sing your failure’s cries

III
There sure will come a day you’ll hunt
And given a time to pull your stunt
So do rehearse even in your chains
To shock your master out of his sanes

IV
You’ll dance even in their trance
As your hard work will you enhance
So never think yourself a dog for life
Just try your all in all your strife
