Trapped

“This cage
is most effective
because of those spikes –

If the ostrich jumps
to try and escape
it will hurt itself
and perceive:

That every spot where it tried to jump
is a predator;
It is safest within its cage.”

The predators close in around the ostrich
Baring their pointy teeth
Their eyes menacing

And the ostrich shrinks back
Against the door to the cage;
At first, it feels
Ashamed

But as the attack continues
it collapses in fear
clutching its head in its wings

Its eyes wide;
Its mouth open
In a Silent Scream

Such a big cage
To run around in
But the ostrich only cowers …
“Why
here?”

“This is where its owner comes
to feed it
Talk to it
and touch it with
Compassion”

if the ostrich were
any other kind of bird
it could simply
fly away
