He’s just a big baby
Totally out of control
Whiny, crying baby
Frowning: “But look at the toll…!”
“I’ve suffered so much”
He barks, again and again
“I can’t wait to be confirmed”
To begin my lifelong rein.
No composure, no grace
Good lord is this our man?
He lies and doesn’t answer
Tucks his head back in the sand.
I won’t hold my breath
Because it’s still a white frat boy’s world
They will sign it in their blood
Despite his black soul being unfurled.
It was just a little bird
He came flying by and by
He was just a little sparrow
Landing so he caught the movement’s eye.
He was just a tiny perfect bird
And yet he was so much more
He symbolized love and peace
And he soon became a special lore.
A message from the heavens
“This is the one I choose”
For he aligns with all of my desires
My spiritual and hopeful views.
This tiny bird he symbolizes
A world to be born anew
This beautiful totem animal
In hope to you he flew.
Sing on now all of you sparrows
Bring the message far and wide
Bringing peace and greatest ease
This movement will not hide.
