Cages Made of Lies

We tell them they are not caged

Yet we trap them in our lies.

We tell them they are not caged

Yet we trap them in their colour.

We tell them they are not caged

Yet we trap them in their love.

We tell them they are not caged

Yet we trap them in the size of their waists.

We tell them they are not caged

Yet we trap them in capitalism.

We tell them they are not caged

Yet they roam on our terms.

We tell them they are not caged

Yet we keep bullets just in case.

We tell them they are not caged

What if we are the caged ones?
