IS IT MY TURN YET?
by Gerard J. Surprenant

Is it my turn yet?
For sunshine and announcements;
For spotlights and pronouncements;
Is it my turn yet?

Is it a sure thing?
For hard work and no play;
For grindstones and made hay;
Is it a sure thing?

Is it a long wait?
For I don't have very long;
For I don't feel very strong;
Is it a long wait?

Is there some room left?
For it looks very crowded;
For all of those "unlauded";
Is there some room left?

Is it my turn yet?
For the boxes are lined up;
For the mourners are signed up;
Is it my turn yet?
