Some are offended by this line from the third stanza:
No refuge can save the hireling and slave.

———————————————————– 

Slaves mentioned
And you’re offended?
YOU’RE in chains.

— 

You’re enslaved
To a past that was
Never yours.

— 

Your burden
Is the past you drag
With each thought.

— 

It’s past time.
No one can free you
But yourself.
