Caged Bird

A free bird leaps on the back
Of the wind and floats downstream
Till the current ends and dips his wing
In the orange suns 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 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 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.

"I know why the caged bird sings" by Maya Angelou

Bittergate


Is Bittergate going to destroy Obama and/or Hillary or the both of them?

Nudevertising


The “Au Naturel” campaign for Avondale Wine is simple and straight to the point: we are getting back to nature.
The brand made a decision a few years ago to produce wine in a natural way that will not harm the environment. They use cover crops instead of fertilizers to restore the balance of the soil. They also use ducks and wasps to control pests, rather than artificial sprays.
As a reflection of their natural wine production process, the ad campaign shows the employees working in the nude (Au Naturel) while gathering, testing and storing the wine.
Nudity is a universal language for being natural, and so, these ads are pretty effective in delivering their message.
