Exotic bird

Colorful feathers, best of one’s sight cheerful bird having access to everything. No need to fly in search of anything. crystal clear water, fruits, greens, carrots cut to tiny bits, served fresh each day, every day, No need to fly in search of food for the day. 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.
