Background

A description of the experience

Boethius – The Consolation of Philosophy

Although the lion wear decorated chains
Although he's subject to the lash's pains
Although he fear the tamer and will stand
To catch at morsels from an outstretched hand
Let blood just once touch his bristling jaws
His latent spirit will return and cause
Him with a roar his old self to recall
And break the chains that from his neck will fall
First limb from limb the tamer then is torn
Whose new spilt blood augments the rage reborn
