The cock’s clarion call
The sparrow’s proclamation,
The gradual total overthrow of darkness
Light? Of hope or illusion?
A twenty-four-wheeled vehicle:
What a relief! It’s thundered and roared past
Past to return no more
Its passengers, sorrows and bitterness
Why peer into the darkness?
Why sniff the bitter trail of that doomed vehicle?
Put it behind you!
It’s a new bright promising day
Flag down the vehicle of hope
Hop in for a jolly, critical ride
Put on the seat-belt of courage, hard work and caution,
Your dreamland is your destination.
