Jailbirds

Oh, How broken wings equate with welded bars!

Constant calling muffled by apathetic metal

The caged bird is hopeless...

 

Oh, How the virulent idea infects its pure mind!

Insanity induces grave self harm

The caged mind is deteriorating...

 

Oh, How a coporeal coffin ensnares a silvery soul!

Marred mercilously by multiple cages

The caged soul is mourning

 

No! the calling and the beating ceases

No sound from the cage persists

The caged prisoners' sentences have ended

I know why the caged birds stopped singing
