A Poem by Fyodor Sologub : We Are All Captured Beasts

Fyodor Sologub-1

We Are All Captured Beasts

We are all captured beasts,
And we howl – as we might.
We can’t open the doors,
For the doors are locked tight.

If our hearts can remember tradition,
When our barking brings solace, we bark.
We don’t know. Long ago we’ve forgotten
That it stinks badly in this zoo-park.

For our hearts can accept repetition;
Bored and weary, we cuckoo our song.
For the zoo is impersonal, habitual;
We’ve not longed to be free for so long.

We are all captured beasts,
And we howl – as we might.
We can’t open the doors,
For the doors are locked tight.
