Unfathomable Cruelty

Only I
know why
the caged
bird sings

It’s because
some bastard
clipped it’s
wings

Yet as the
tears rise
and the
anger stings

The bird
knows it’s
just one of
those things

  1. There’s something sick and twisted about me because it made me laugh but just about the clipped wings parts. And maybe because I relate. Like when you laugh when someone falls even though you’re not laughing at them falling or getting hurt. Maybe it just brings up that moment of humiliation. When things are bad, laugh. Weird defense I’ve developed.
