One wee rusty wren
warbling with glee
will willingly wake
those who sleep-walk through life
wicked and weary, their wrong ways
while the world waits for change
to worn windowsill
we wait and we listen
with each wonder-filled trill
there’s work to be done
the wren whistles and warns,
time’s a wastin’, wars are raging
get up now, get woke.
