the seller of gold cages to wild birds

"but what does it do?"ask the birds
Well-this simple cage works best if you are a blackbird on the wing
Clips your wings and you may never fly again
This cage assaults you @airports-stripsearches elder birds and baby birds
shakedowns fragile birds with medical conditions
(the GOLD version costs more-but largely bypasses shakedowns(VERY expensive!
Steel cages are used for youth,to keep their wings small
Cagemakers guarantee the non-lethality of their creations
but do not attempt to fly in hunting season!
Many a bird has been lost to us believing
they were immune to aircraft engines and plate glass ceilings!
"but WHY do we need cages @all?"ask the wild birds
"it is MUCH more fun to sing outside the cage!"
"And THAT is why we train you in cages,so you can work in cages all your life-
all you have to do is choose your preferred cage.You will be in one
for the term of your natural flight.."
