Cancelled Flight

Cancelled Flight

No architect of reason can save them from their plight.
No proffered catnip ransom restore their former flight.
When lethal paws unsheath their daggers, hummingbird and finch—
Their wings, stilled from their flight, lie scattered on the bench.

 

whirred

Prompt words today are architect, can, ransom, plight and paws.
