Mankind does not

Agree
Gorden J.L. Ramel

I have no use for birds in cages,
but mankind does not agree;
they’ve been gaoling them for ages
and they just don’t seem to see
that the beauty that inspired, inevitably fades,
and what once was writ in diamonds
will in time be played in spades.
Wings are made for flying,
for dancing with the air,
and wings that cannot open
are the colour of despair,
and an anger in me rages
and I long to set them free,
but it’s the sadness of the ages
that mankind does not agree.
