140. “Far between sundown’s finish an’ midnight’s broken toll, We ducked inside the doorway, thunder crashing. As majestic bells of bolts struck shadows in the sounds, Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing. Flashing for the warriors whose strength is not to fight, Flashing for the refugees on the unarmed road of flight, An’ for each an’ ev’ry underdog soldier in the night, An’ we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.”

141. “All is gone, all is gone, admit it, take flight. I gagged twice, doubled, tears blinding my sight. My mind it was mangled, I ran into the night Leaving all of love's ashes behind me. The wind knocks my window, the room it is wet. The words to say I'm sorry, I haven't found yet. I think of her often and hope whoever she's met Will be fully aware of how precious she is. Ah, my friends from the prison, they ask unto me, ‘How good, how good does it feel to be free?’ And I answer them most mysteriously, ‘Are birds free from the chains of the skyway?’”
