No need to fly in search of



crystal clear water,

fruits, greens, carrots

mate – brought

from homeland,

thrust to her for life

without ceremony or

chance to test him Nature’s way,

No need to fly in search of

mate for any season.


Metal wired nest

no fear of breakage

from gusty wind, gale or storm

droppings cleared away too,

No need to fly

in search of twigs, cotton-fluff.


Wings that shall never

take her high,

instincts long dead in heart,

She –an exotic lovely bird

caged, fed, and taken care of by man.

No need to fly.
