It's Sunday morning - I'm warm in my bed,
Church bells are ringing me back from the dead.
Why can't worshipers do so in quiet?
I'm sure they can pray without all the riot.
They say God rested on the seventh day -
I'd like some rest, too, that is, if I may.
But instead of searching for z's to soak up,
I guess that I should be grateful I woke up!
