Escaped words go where?

Wordcages are the boxes our words get trapped in, when

Sometimes we aren't allowed to finish our sentences.

Sometimes our thought gets trampled over by another's words,

Someone more important (they think)

Usually, someone with testicles.

So our words go into a word cage

So they can't escape and change the world.
