A Caged Bird Wishes To Be Free - Poem by Billy Simani

A caged bird wishes to be free,
To fly with the wind and flee,

Let me fly like a bee,
And explore where my eyes can see,

Over the horizon to the green golf tee,
I'll set camp and build an Indian tepee,

Singing alone with a voice of three,
Someone yonder will think it a glee,

Who says only women are twee,
Emotions are emotions even if wee,

I want to feel freedom if only you agree,
Being a caged bird I envy thee,

Taking your family on a shopping spree,
Leaving me in bondage at no fee,
