Here I sit in my gilded cage Bars confine me because I got in a rage No chance for a roll in the hay As I’m locked up 24 hours a day The only bars are the ones that imprison me Only twenty more years and I then will be free Locked up for a crime that I admit Being in prison is simply rubbish (I couldn't use my rhyming word!) 101 Poems in a row #17 sponsored by PD Linda :-) 10th May 2015

Maybe in a previous life Nette lol:-) I just try and find humour wherever i can - there has been enough sadness in my recent life without me adding to it with dull depressing poems Hugs Jan xx

I'd be very happy to be locked up with you Jan. We could play I spy together, but it would get boring after a short while. Pete.

Jan, your poem is funny and sad at the same time, and I like how you took poetic license in the last line, for sure your rhyming word would be too much, a great 7, and thanks for visiting my poem, I am. . . yes it does have a family feel, the images of those little birds following mom and dad did it for me
