They shut me up in Prose —
As when a little Girl
They put me in the Closet —
Because they liked me “still” —
 
Still! Could themself have peeped —
And seen my Brain —go round —
They might as wise have lodged a Bird
For Treason —in the Pound —
 
Himself has but to will
And easy as a Star
Abolish his Captivity —
And laugh —No more have I —
