How Can I Serve?

This is a rondeau about faithfulness.

How can I serve a foreign lord
When I’m engaged and can’t afford
To be untrue or break my bond?
So many weary men have pawned
Their souls—and can they be restored?

Now chaos is a flaming sword
That bars the gate to Eden’s ward;
When peace is made a vagabond,
How can I serve?

Across the earth, great evil hordes
Make brazen sounds with secret chords;
Enslaving men whom they have conned,
They mock and scorn the Great Beyond;
Though many men have signed accords,
How can I serve?
