A Bird In A Cage

Freedom

Caged Like A Bird



A few words to remind everyone of the many,many innocent people in prisons all around the world.

...................................................


Keep a bird in a cage

let the liberator enter.


Open windows and the age

of reason dignifies

Just why a singing

Dove, who gives out

tunes of church bells ringing,

flies off to far-away.


Then finds the peace of

truth, to dress the bars

of prisoners ,clothed in Orange,

with ankles chained so thin.


Belonging to the innocent within,

the others on the outside,

also wear in vain the chains,

and have no hope to get release.


Just say in chorus 'open wide the cage

let the liberator enter !'

Sorry about the double hit on my name, I believe that we all may be as birds in a cage, and that when we pass, we will experience the true freedom of all our world has to offer. It is truly a shame that we cannot do this while we are alive. One day the liberator will open our cages and we will all fly to the heavens above and be joined in the one great spiritual light, one with our God. Nice hub and well received.

Prison has always been an "industry" but today the "industry" is so scientifically calculating. Capitalism has run amok. Where man's inhumanity to man has always been horrible, today it has the approval of all the voters. And yes, we are birds in cages and I will be so free to shed these chains. I want to fly and my growth is stunted on planet bizarre. Too many good people persecuted and too many criminals running the prison. Our society is "doing everything for filthy lucre". May the fruits of your heart always return jandee.

Micky,hello. I think it's gone its limit surely ! What things worse are imaginable than what we see daily . Horrors created by sub-humans, the thing is that the ordinary voters are so bewidered by the speed of the evils of capitalism that they can scarcely keep up while themselves are struggling for survival. Lovely to hear from you Micky. Do you bother with bubblews ? Let me know !

bubblews ? Don't know that one dear.

"Horrors created by sub-humans" - John Prine sang about "Some humans ain't human, though they walk like we do. They live and they breathe, just to turn your screw."

I can see most all of the possibilities. At times I have not believed in God myself. At times the only "god" has been an impish god, a warring god, an uncaring god. But I have been imprisoned and in solitary confinement and whether there is a merciful "God", the benevolent God or not - I have to believe in more than I see, even more than I believe. I have to believe in the science of "God". "For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction." We can call the "wind" by a lot of different names.

Silence the rage.

Open the cage.

For a while, stop the rain.

For eternity, cut the chain.

Give us wings, let us see,

Who of us is really free?

Hello Micky,

You are free ! You've kicked the jailors and you are free!!

Knowledge is freedom and you have loads of the stuff,

best from jand
