In Need of a Wise Owl
I’ve been searching the planet for our wisest owl
One that doesn’t droop his jowl, nor scowl
Are you the clever owl who will lead our world
Perched there stoically with wings unfurled
The statesman of our ancient forests
And guardian of our forgotten promises
Wisdom radiates from your knowing eyes
What do you observe from your throne in the sky
Are we honest enough, are we even worthy?
Have we enough modesty, are we even earthly?
