The Binding

it is addressed thusly:
A song.
it reads:
Fathers be good to your daughters
And mothers be good to your sons
A truth not considered by authors
Of the laws on which society runs
Much is made of the broken and sad
But who grasped the chance that was had
To make well for these forgotten ones
To make good before there was bad?
A circle must remain unbroken
For it to be quite so-called
But forgotten things are unspoken
So obvious we are appalled;
Shocked by modernity's slaughters
Though blood is thicker and wider-walled
We still drown under rising waters
Under the shout of rebellious guns--
So fathers be good to your daughters
And mothers be good to your sons.
