Anvil of freedom

Solid, cold, sparking in bright sunlight
Forging, moulding, shaping the steel

Hammering sweat with strength into objects
bought by farmers, warriors, thieves

Linked by chains that hold them together
for crimes they did not commit

With a strike of the axe honed on the anvil
They’re prised apart and free
