Caged Man


Let your imagination run wild
Imagine a caged man!
Laughing outside is a bird’s child
Not just one man but the whole clan!

Humiliated the man feels
The birds are playing outside happily!
His humiliation now will never heal
Even if he is allowed to move freely!

Once the birds were in a hurry
They forgot to give the man any food!
After returning they just said sorry
His food always depended on their mood!

He just couldn't move in the small cage
The birds moved freely under the big bower!
He could only see their flickering image
And later only a black cover.

At midnight and at morn?
