Flightless Bird, Dancing

He dances like a flightless bird
Imitating his aviator friends.
Is he crazy,
Or the last sane one?

When he meets the ground,
His mouth hidden from view,
Are the tears sad ones
Or the kind joy drops?

Resistant to conformity,
He must be defiant
With an inhuman rigor
To preserve his dance.

He thinks flightless birds
Are the ones
Who evolved
Into saner beings.
