Tiny Wooden Pieces
You never seem to notice me,
Not so much as a wave,
Perched right here, next to this tree,
Did you ever stop and think of all the people I had to save?
I’m more than just a piece of wood you know
Not just some little toy,
Just because I’ll never grow,
Doesn’t mean that I’m something for a little boy.
Once upon a time,
I was big and tall and brave!
Back when I was in my prime,
I was more than just some useless knave.
I have seen great buildings boiled and burned,
And never uttered so much as a word,
With only a few pennies earned
I was thrust back, amongst the herd.
I always did what I was told
To never mind and to always be kind
But next time you see me out in the cold,
Please ask, what is on my mind.
