FETTERED~by Sudeshna Mukherjee


GloPoWriMo Day 6
Prompt I know the caged bird sings

 

 

FETTERED

Trapped in Life’s deceit
All come with drawn receipt
Herded to be shepherded
In the gloaming dusk unheralded

The weals of chain
Always threadbare rains
Their song floats in overflowing drains
With bowed head and hooded eyes dumped in the gravy train

Reins of life in hands not your own
In the checkered board just a pawn
Meticulously entrenched in the entrails
Their life’s train chuggs to derail

I know how the caged bird sings
Do re me fah so la tee
Come one come all
Sing loudly ‘ just let me be ‘ !
