Resemblance

Killed birds do not fly.
Broken strings don't sound.
Plugged holes do not leak.
Closed hands don't work.

Sick teeth don't gnaw.
Standing feet don't grind.
Dead bodies don't sweat.
False walls don't crumble.

Sweat does not die on bodies.
The pain does not heal on the skin.
The sound does not come from the strings.

The flight does not echo on the wings.
The pain doesn't go away.
Bird that flies is shot down.
