we love to chain

We love to chain

Slavery is in our veins
when your grand child arrives
let him free
don’t put him in a pram
then see
man is not as independent as birds and bees
we all love overpowering mystery
happy be the animal kingdom,
they learn faster than you and me

Where was god
when we were born,
don't ask me
we all are free
take it from me
but dependent human beings

A miniscule few are born leaders
so don't belittle the animal kingdom

A Lion will roar
just wait and see!

Just a socio/biological note. The "higher" mammals, like ourselves, tend to have more useless, dependant offspring. I think it's to do with the ability to learn as opposed to surviving on instinct.

you know what a "chain" is street jargon? Gang rape. I'm sure you did not intend the association however I might reconsider the title.

chaining is just confining animals to a cage

dogs indoors
birds in cages
and animals in zoos

restriction of freedom of all

you may suggest a new title,
if i so pleases you
