The Bird Has Flown the Coop

The Bird Has Flown the Coop

The Bird has flow the coop
It looked at all the other locked up birds
It took time to look at what
she managed to scoop
away from the Queen Spider in the corner
She saw a crack in the door
and took flight
though she was full of fright
The big blue sky was waiting
while the left behind birds pecked
Freedom paging saying Get away
from that wreck!
Those other birds were cold with glassy eyes
they'd huddle away from her in their fancy feathers
as hers drooped in sadness.
Sure they'd throw her a few birdseeds once in awhile
but they'd never cheep or chirp in her presence.
The bird wanted to sing
but knew it wasn't possible in that cage
Now that she's out, can she find a happy branch to sit on?
