Somewhat Cagey


Be careful little bitty
I may nab you for my friend
I plan to lure you in a cage
to sing to me no end

Watching from a high point
of your daily ins and outs
Longing with a fervor 
to know of your whereabouts

But! The leaves have fallen from the tree
now powerless to bow
Then so begins my stakeout
then your freedom's disavowed 

Come closer little bitty
see the treats that I bestow
In my silk and woven basket
and the cage that swings below

See, I told you little bitty
your defences they would fold
And our friendship would be happy
at home, gilded in your gold
