Sorrow versus Reason

At the chance arrival of reason,
the shy chick of sorrow trembled.

She was preparing for a long winter sleep,
in a dungeon, wired to blow at slightest of disturbance.

Reason always arrived with a plan,
something sorrow detested.

Now reason had a chance,
and nay, chick wasn't ready to relent.

Sorrow faced a hard battle,
in front of dungeons of the mind.

Reason refused to let the chick prevail,
but dungeon master had other plans.

Now the bodice of nature waits,
for this noble war to be done.

To see if it is sorrow,
or reason that the dungeon master won.
