Pidgeon in a cage

Pidgeon in a cage
Pidgeon in a cage
consumptive
underfed
and de-conditioned
with internal rage

too weak to express
grieving a powerless feeling
far away from the river
it's to fly along and deliver

at the mercy
of an un-empathetic half wit
a half asleep
and resentful owner
incapable
un-insightful
of the optimal feed to provide

and it'll never change
and all the pidgeon can do
is stockpile away
and hang on day
by day


weary eyed
hanging on
waiting
unto late
waiting for
the satin clad
to open up the gate
