  Wild Stallion roaming free,
What would you do if you were me,
Trapped in this cage called Society?
Would you scream your anger loud and clear
Or would you just smolder in rage and fear,
Quietly waiting to run or die?

Wild Stallion, if I were you,
I know what I would do --
Avoid the two-legged creatures,
With most unusual features, called -- Man.

Because, my dear Wild Stallion,
You are the Spanish galleon
Floating free on the breeze,
With even the wind at your knees,

And they will cage you,
Just for that, not caring or seeing,
Just following their cruel and evil being.
It's the nature of the creature called -- Man.

Wild Stallion you set me free.
Please let there always be
Someone with the key --
To the cage called Society.

Well written. It's funny, sometimes I just marvel at the accomplishments of our species, and at others I see this perspective and think we must be the most terrible monsters on earth.
