when u set them free

ok for one i cant find my 5 yr old camera.. kinda sucks.. but for a while i have been feelin sorry for the parakeets we had in the store. not sure havin any animal caged and eating pretty much the same thing daily is anyway to treat anything breathing.. so for a while i had been contemplatin settin them free.. but then i wasnt sure what kinda life was awaiting them.. u know it’s like. will they be welcomed on the streets of lagos? and i really didnt want them to hit the streets doing illegal stuff and get caught up again in the system .. u know how it is with parakeets.. can’t seem to get themselves out of jail.. meant prison... meant cage...

so it so happens that the pair had been plannin their escape for a while. U know they were doing close to a 2 yr bid i could swear i had seen them do beak pull ups.. a few push up and they were definitely flappin their wings simulating flight.. little did i know that they were up to something huge....

so this early monday mornin of the 8th march 1463. the cage was regularly being cleaned and food and water replaced and all of a sudden i heard some ruckus, the bird had given my store guy an upper cut and whopped his ass black belt style..

ok ok ok back to reality .. same date. same time.. as they were about to clean the cage.. One flew out into the store. and i was like ok... lets see whats goin to happen.. Usually we send the dogs on them sniff em out ..Lock up.. give em more time and put them in solitary confinement.. I wasnt even goin to be lenient on the escapee u have to set an example…NS dont play that.. we dont tolerate any disobedience,. no room for uprising...

Anyway back to my story. so the bird got out as the cage was being cleaned.. store guy went after it a few times and i said to myself.. free these birds jo... they have served enough time in the pen... plus their family/ mistresses or even baby mama may still be out there lookin for them.. u just never know

so now i freed them .. so my question now is what happens next?

does the male run out and spread its seed and not come back to a life of crime u know being locked up with one bird for close to 2 yrs might be torture in itself

or would it go out and join forces with other escapees or other tortured inmates and plan ways to get back at us humans

or would it do odd jobs and blame the man for destroyin its life.

all these thoughts.. i need to get back to work.. but u can imagine a whole lot options a freed bird has now... hopefully it doesnt end up in food to a prey or back in a cage somewhere..

ns setting suckaz free. since 1463
