Cage The Bird

Cage the bird and silence its song.

Then take the lion to the dentist to extract its teeth

And give them to the loudest person lying buried beneath

The rabble of mediocracy where they cheered and laughed

As intelligence was murdered without a single gasp!

Cage the bird and silence its song,

In case, its individualism disturbs the sycophants too long.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.

    Education to some relevant issues might be the cure.
    Perhaps a book a song a word
    perhaps another day to choose to say
    what is lost is lost, what remains remains
    and what I have in front of me
    is what I choose to bend
    to make it the life I was meant
    some do it through lyrics, some do it through careers
    some through politics, some through hussle
    some through work, some through books
    some through words
    either way we say it
    either way we see it
    it is what it is
    and my two and myself
    will come forth
    and so will the rest of the world
    for the deepest need of the human need
    is simply to be and exist
    in a place called home
