Shackles and Chains and Fetters

Ma, I feel this fetter on my flesh, so unbearable
Let me break it, let me break the bondage;
Go and get the gong, then howl
Tell the whole world what's worthy,
Sickening self-righteousness, they'd say
I care not, I say;
What will be, shall be
In this overwhelming positioning, still
All's only an opinion:
What do I give when I go free
What do I take when I come free,
With all but these shackles and chains and fetters?
