Bird Don't Chirp

She can speak,

Her heart sinks,

Her lips remain with a padlock on them.

The moment she speaks,

Dragons shoot their flames.

A bird with a cage around it,

She is told to remain mute,

She can go nowhere.

Oh, the boredom!

Oh, the troubles!

Bird don't chirp,

The message is clear.

She must get permission to sing,

Permission to dance,

Permission to play a musical instrument,

Permission to write,

Permission to read.

Does she also have to get permission to get permission?

She dares break out of her cage.

She dares chirp.

Jesus tells her to.
