The Child That Did Not Help

A child found a small, injured, bird and felt an overwhelming urge to help.

The small innocent creature was cradled in tender hands and carried home.

The bird was nursed back to health with great intentions.

Then the child, clipped it's wings and broke it's bones.

In a generous offer of freedom, the child threw the bird out of the window

In hopes that it would fly

And was left wondering why,

It flew not, and instead died.
