Why does the caged bird sing?

I thought I knew why the caged bird sang
I thought I knew her tune
She sang for peace, she sang for progress
At least I thought she did
The caged bird sings a conflict
Now, ululations for the master
Then, wailing like a mourner
The caged bird sings of fight and flight
Why does the caged bird sing?
Today, for food for her young
Tomorrow, for fear for her life
Praises one minute, malediction the next
I fear the caged bird loses its heart
For even the proud Ugo will bow for crumbs
To fight and starve, or die and live?
For what does the caged bird sing?
