My little birds,
safely in their cage,
are enjoying fresh air
outside my window.
They are calling to their wild cousins,
seemingly without understanding
the differences that separate them.
How happily they sing,
as if freedom is theirs.
Nothing has changed,
not really,
but don’t tell them.
They think the world is theirs.

And so it is.
