The Nightingale...

'... Tell me
How does a nightingale feel
when kept in gilded cage
Does it sing its song
or scream out its rage
Tell me, if its wings are clipped
how does it fly
having had its heart broken
Does it wonder why
or has it no emotion
so really wouldn't cry
Do you think it feels much pain
trapped there in it's cage
Do you feel he'll sing again
the sweetest of refrains
or is he just a captive bird
a thing 'pon which to stare
no longer a nightingale
whose song was never there...'
