Parrot-like In Her Cage

Posted in philosophy, poetry, quotes by amoslanka on September 18, 2008

Fouling your nourishment. Harpy wings, 

Filling your minds all day with foolish things,

Will tame the eagle Thought: till she sings

Parrot-like in her cage to please dark kings.

– From “Deception”, a poem by C.S. Lewis
