—Can a Bird Return to Its Nest...

"Can a bird return to its nest

Who is not a fledgling yet?"

---Its mother knows best!

"Without a wind to lift it up

Nor its tiny wings to flap;

Has the bird even grown up?"

"Why on earth did it fall,

      for god's sake,

When it's just about

      to wake?"

I asked too many a

      free falling sparrow

And they affirmed

      a simple tomorrow.

Just as convincingly as

      the dead pigeon, at hand,

That kept itself freezing

      in an activist's hand!
