The Kept Sparrow

Before my breath draws nigh

I pray I

Stay the straight and narrow

Truth divide my bone and marrow

Make a right from  a wrong

A given  strength to carry on

Apologise when I am wrong

And thank God for the kept sparrow

See a righteous politician elected

A friend in a teenager rejected

A n authentic laugh good and true

Shed a tear with a friend when

they are feeling blue

Thank God for the kept Sparrow

Ask questions of life

and let her question me...

And thank God for the kept sparrow

The End
