There were a yellow humming bird,
And a rich red man full of rage,
Who pinched himself - he thought he heard,
Bird compliment his shiny cage,
-
He growled and puffed and shook himself,
Blamed it on the end of day,
'Till on his shoulder the bird he felt,
"Sir, you've such a stunning cage!"
-
"What a perfect place to hide!,"
"Worth a pretty penny I would wage!,"
Red Man lost his footing; sighed -,
"But, Oh! The cost of such a cage!,"
-
"As it shines and glistens there,"
"I'm trapped to forever die and age,"
"It's curves and patterns are so rare,"
"Have to sell soul to settle cage,"
-
A flutter of wings were all he heard,
Bird said - "To know me would be sage,"
"I'm your soul - The Humming Bird!"
"Damn the fucking cage!"
