Caged Bird

By Maya Angelou

The free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wings in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage can seldom see through his bars of rage his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings with fearful trill of the things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association decided to serve a 100% plant-based meal at the 77th Gold Globes and its receiving applause from celebrities. Leonardo DiCaprio went on Twitter to show his support by retweeting the news and writing, “Thank you HFPA.” Bless Leonardo DiCaprio.

Fellow actor and climate activist Mark Ruffalo also tweeted the decision. “Our industry leads by example,” he wrote. “Vegetarian food is delicious and healthy and reduces green house gasses about as much as driving electric cars. The HFPA should be commended for this and all the other awards shows should follow suit.”

And that’s not all. Other celebrities applauded HFPA’s menu switch. Nathalie Emmanuel from Game of Thrones’ retweeted the news with an enthusiastic “errrrr YES!”
