Little Yellow Canary

A canary gasping for air in a mine

Pretending I am feeling fine

Fly, little birdie

Flap your wings!

Fighting for a thousand things

The will to live, to breathe some air

Though your destiny feels unfair

That precious moment where you inspire

Enables you to quell the fire

Building in your lungs and throat

And charring the plumage of your yellow coat
