The Moral Lesson of The Curious Girl and the Beautiful Bird – dark

A curious girl
Saw a bird
And caught it
But when she put it
In her beautiful cage
It thrashed madly about
She said
Just give it time
And it will calm down
But the beautiful bird
Grew evermore frantic
Breaking both wings
And bleeding from the mouth
She lifted its twitching body
Withdrew it from the cage
And threw it up in the air
Hoping it would fly
But it plummeted to the sidewalk
Twitched and screeched something
Perhaps a prayer for its own soul to God
In broken bird song
She refused to cry
And she goes about her days
Pretending everything was OK
Because the Truth
Is always just too painful to embrace, which is kind of a shame because if she would face the truth there would be a purpose to all the suffering.
And the bird . . .
The ants and worms
Ate the remains
