The birds fly back
Parched eyes
Frozen tears
Their winter home
Was never this
Hawks preyed relentlessly
Friends turned strangers
Ones who were agreeable
May get influenced
Beyond recognition
By this time, next year,
Allegiance is territorial
Compassion is a curse
Love is a lie
Being nice is weakness;
Birds stand for peace
Their confusion is palpable
Who are these animals
Lusting for blood
Lush green fields below
Were a bloody mess
A few decades back,
Unlearning comes naturally,
Misplaced alternate reality
Ego over ethos
Manufactured misconceptions;
Tiresome journey
A jungle in sight
It’s time to rest
Weary wings
Stifled song
Isn’t music any more..
