Chapter 168 of the book Poems
an acrostic poem
"Year of Jubilee" by Bill Schott

You can only owe so long,
Eternal debt is always wrong;
A year to end all debts and sin,
Return the servant to his kin.

Oppressive debt that has no end,
Fifty years some families fend;

Justice calls for freedom’s chance,
Unshackled legs return to dance.
Born again some say to grow,
Illumination leads from woe;
Let us build a better world,
Espy the freedom flag unfurled;
Expect the Year of Jubilee.

The book continues with With the Tide. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
The Year of Jubilee was a tradition of the Israelites to forgive debts and return indentured servants to their families. Nowadays some view it as a synonym for freedom from sin and a new beginning.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
