Scarlet Macaw

I am the scarlet parrot from the Amazon,
Intelligent, beautiful, passionate,
Trapped in a cage too small for my wings.

With nothing but a pretty bell
To keep me entertained.

With nothing but a mirror
To keep me company.

With nothing but a sprig of millet
To keep me sustained.

Craving fascination.
Craving love.
Craving life.
