Two birds in the aviary

(Recapped from my old blog)

Two birds, watching the skyline from the aviary:

Bird 1: So, those are human cages?

Bird 2: Yes.

Bird 1: They’re so much bigger!

Bird 2: And more crowded.

Bird 1: The architecture is amazing!

Bird 2: They’re too busy to pay attention.

Bird 1: They must have better food in there.

Bird 2: If only they have time to enjoy them.

Bird 1: I’ve heard they have a magical device called air-con which keeps the air cool…

Bird 2: … and the fresh air out.

Bird 1: Well, they’re still better than ours, aren’t they?

Bird 2: Not necessarily. At least we’ve got trees and breeze. And you have no idea how anxious they are to get out when the clock hits six.

Bird 1: If their cages are so bad, why did they move in?

Bird 2: Because if they stay in there long enough, they can afford bigger cages.

Bird 1: But… at least they’re free to get out, while we’re stuck here forever.

Bird 2: They just move from one cage into another.
