Treasure Island

Flying Lemming

(England)

Cage Rage


I’ve evolved over generations
Many countries and many nations
Resulting in a glorious thing
With beauty of grace, style and wing
I have a wonderful ability
To glide and soar and be free
Nature really got it right
When it gave me the gift of flight
So I must say with sarcasm and rage
Thanks for putting me in this cage!

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
