Breaking out

Living wild
filed under
Amazon or
animal
and I lived free,
like Houdini
I escaped. the chains,
I reigned
supreme.

They trapped me
unnaturally,
used a stun grenade
took me from the safety
of my stockade to
parade me
in front of
Royalty.

And they hounded me
no longer free
I bury inside and somewhere
inside there’s another me
like Houdini
I reign again
supreme
