After talking about what he sees, the poet describes the reaction of the Men in Chains to being hauled like animals to the boat. The poet first describes the reaction to being exposed to the cold wind. He writes “‘Go away! Cold wind! Go away!/Can’t you see we are naked?’” The poet refers to the theme of dehumanization from the middle of the stanza when he talks about the shearing of sheep. The poet uses the word naked to show that the ‘men in chains’ understand the fact that they have been shorn like sheep, and beg the wind to keep away from them so they can at least protect their last human instinct, the only one their captors haven’t stripped from the prisoners.
