Mr. Cricket A Bigot?

Updated on September 15, 2015

Mr. Cricket A Bigot? by Sam Tumblin

There once was a cricket

All swore he was a bigot

Cause he kept to himself cold and rigid

You might as well say he was frigid

Many years he impressed this way

Year by year never a change in any day

So one day I built up the nerve

Curios why he seemed malcontent he served

I said hey you mister cricket

Why are you such a nasty bigot

He said son never realized I was viewed that way

I always heard shuffles of feet every day

Guess because I'm blind in my eyes

Been kind of lonely since my caretaker died

Sorry my friend I said I did not know

Never took the time I went with the flow

He said don't worry guess we are all bigots

Especially when something is unfriendly and frigid

You know that old cricket is right

We all see better when what we see is warm and bright
