In a Game of Gain and Flightless Glory

Together, two boys rested on a swing

Breath heavy as each pushed his heels harder;

Discussing captivity and martyrs

Discussing heros as if they were things

Only dreamt about in a world with wings,

These boys knew flight but fleeing was farther

From a falcon’s true nature, see, father

Said a gift is a burden, justice sings

Not of equality when you’re in the rings

With a lion, with a grand beast so vile

You cannot escape since you aren’t the same

Conformity is the best solution

But danger, to those beyond denial

Is nothing for a toss to leave the game,

Kick up and fly, spark the revolution
