Morning Bird
by Rick Tornello

No sun! Still dark
I’m going to kill that damned alarm clock.
The early bird,
You know the one.
The wake up bird before the sun.
Every morning with out fail
His call is sharp
Her call is loud
A solitary voice
The wake up call to every one:
It’s time, it’s time
Rise and shine
Time for work
Dig for grub and worm.
Time to eat, time to eat
It’s time It’s time
Rise and shine
Work to be done.
And soon the cacophony.

By, Rick Tornello
