"The Captive Parrot"
Magnificent creatures, what a wonderful sight.
When a colorful bird takes off in flight.
What beautiful wings, so high in the air,
Oh what I'd give to dwell with them there.
Captured and bred, till they no longer see,
How to live in there world, nor what its like to be free.
Its so sad how they live, confined in one spot,
Cannot perch in a tree nor be part of a flock.
They've been brought in our homes,
Their will not in thought,
We'll have them as pets, whether they care or not,
Their ways we have changed,their homes we have burned,
Yet what have they shown us but love in return.
To them we owe a life long debt,
How dare we mistreat them and call them a pet.
Forgiving and trusting, our patience they need.
So remember your task when it seems hard to do,
Your kind loving friend will appreciate you
