You murder me
Another butterfly
kept pinned to a corkboard

Label me
Classified to a stereotype
Ignore my screams
Ignore my pleading
Leave me to dreaming
Of soaring free

You're murdering me
Keeping me caged like a canary
Ignore my screams
Mistake it for singing

Forced to
Silently fume
About small things
like wingspans and elbow room

You're killing me
like how you kill time
Hours of cursing your kind

Find me wide-eyed
and foaming
At the mouth
At the beak
Or whatever insects use
To speak
