The Bird

The Bird
Lifted his head
And sang
Songs of cunning censorship

Below him
Life wheeled on-
On wooden legs
Of conditioned conformity

His simple song changed register
Suddenly-
A model metaphor for stuttering society

The Bird lost patience
In the apathetic silence
Of organic hordes
Blunting the world's wild spaces
With mechanistic regularity

He flapped his wired wings
And flew off
In the direction of
Individual diversity

Hi Guys. This is one of the best initiative I have ever come across. Infact I would ensure that I would link you up on my blog too. That way, we can involve more like minded people, since I know some all over the globe who would be eager to support such initiatives.

It is indeed a pleasure to visit you all.
