It was a great day A great day to chase
For him, it was a hunt But for her, a race.
He would never know rest Till he held her tight
Until he'd caught and broken That pretty sight
Though she flew She could never hide
She was too frail To put up a fight.
So he chased her Like a moth to the light
Ever he chased her Both day and night
But she couldn't blame him For wanting to fly
He was stuck grounded But she had the whole sky
It didn't seem right And he didn't know why
But she was delight To his burning eyes
The chase was on And so she fled
But still he wanted her Alive or dead
He never would stop Until she was in his hands
Until he'd tied that creature Of sky to the land
And then came the time She couldn't get away
He pinned her down Forced her to stay.
He kept her close, Like the treasure he was not
But then threw her away When her wings began to rot.
