Do they want to run away from the other
or hold arms?
Will this prevent theft? Or just suggest
to a thief
that either both be taken, or neither.
They didn't choose this bondage.
Chained, they can't be moved without
being in concert. If they have a fight they could be
positioned back to back.
in the middle of a cold night they
might pray that a storm would
sweep them together, letting one
sit warmly on the other's lap.
We don't know the story, really.
Maybe it was a jokester who
chained them together. Or maybe
the owner, fearful that they will run
off and join the circus.
I would not sit in
these chairs, feeling like I was
making this cruelty ok. Id feel
chained myself, sitting on
such a chained chair.
Others might think nothing of it,
chained to a chained chair.
They might not wonder
if the chain would snake
up and chain them too.
