They Made Me Whisper

They made me whisper.
Hush.
Hush they told me, hush young man.
“ Love is not astounding, it’s done when one has time.
The wheels here must be rimed with grease,
the pits here filled with lime.”

They made me whisper.
Hush.
Hush they told me, hush now man.
“The soul cannot be found here. God’s voice here is mime.
The punishment is tailored chain,
and does not fit a crime.”

They made me whisper.
Hush.
Hush they told me, hush old man.
They made me whisper to you. They made me hold back breath.
They kept me in their earshot,
and sang to me of death.
