Poem - Kept in a Cage

“Kept in a Cage” is about one of the nuances of the human experience.


Kept in a Cage

The creature is best kept in a cage
lest the world know of its ways
longing for far too much
in the realm of civil folk
you'll not hear the growling sigh
unless the muse betrays my trust
too much shared along the way
by putting words to damning page.

The hunger is kept at bay
slackened only by hand fed scraps
delivered in due privacy
lest the world see depravity
the diet would cause me shame
with only demons comforting
their howls of coarse delight
providing shame in my heart.

I wish I could slay the freak
remove the stain from myself
never will this come about
it's part of my humanity
excuse me while I lock the door
throw the bar against the urge
the beast will stay away from you
best for all, kept in a cage.
