Still Singing

I know why
the caged bird sings.
He’s long forgot
the finer things.
He no longer remembers
freedom or flight,
or the wind’s caress
as he soars through the night.
With no recollection
of things once adored,
he has no reason not to sing
for his keeper’s delight.

Prompt: Caged Bird (#2)
