The Monkey Caged and Learning

This is no easy lesson to be learned
    But you will learn it nonetheless
        On your knees, begging, pleading,
            Murmuring lonesome prayers –
                Love is for nothing
                    And wanting is for nothing and all of it is for what?
                        Better to kill all hope and let it die with some purity
Before one thought can breed another and two always begets three and three
        Four and then five and thoughts bred in captivity, bound up, is a cruel and
            Perverse act
                There is no joy in the caged mind
No joy at all
