Nestlings – 9th June 2022

Tiny whispers screaming at the air
Hungry for understanding of this world unfair
Tentative steps towards wings to fly
As tigers wait with open mouths nearby
Mothers teaching babies self-reliance
Exercised in gambled acts of defiance
Jumping nests and flailing limbs
Searching where the rest of life begins

…what you call civilisation in the West is naught but another spectre of the many phantoms of tragic deception.

Yusif in The Tempest by Khalil Gibran
