i am waiting on a pedestal
i was put up high in the clouds
where pigeons can mess on me
and i become forgotten in the sun

once i was a hero, i was someone long ago
now i am just a dirty perch for a somber crow
surrounded by sticks and stones
there are no-one here
even the dead left me alone
just me and my broken wings i fear

i am waiting on a pedestal
i was put up high in the clouds
of dust…

just waiting…

for no-one
