   To Graveyard Shift


Ivy climbs o'er obstacles;
     She's lively, and she's strong.
Very soon, she'll overpow'r
     Whatever comes along.
Yet in her strength, there's beauty,
     A living, breathing song.

In a while,
My sanity would break
Upon her insanity,
Like a wave against a cliff.
I must ebb
And leave it to the Sea.
Time and Tide
Will take it away.

Smoking Times Schedule

In the Morning, half past nine. (9:30 AM)
An hour after lunch is fine. (1:30 PM)
In mid-afternoon, form a line, (3:00 PM)
An hour after we dine, (7:00 PM)
And if you're still awake, at nine. (9:00 PM)

In Deseret, the Honeybee
Is known both far and wide.
He pollinates the flowers
Over all the countryside.
He's busy here and buzzing there
In this field and in that.
He doesn't pause while daylight reigns;
He doesn't stop to chat,
For work is work, and must be done,
Though tired he may be.
He gathers pollen everywhere;
He is a honeybee.

To Graveyard Shift

The hardy souls who work all night
While others go to sleep
May not be seen or known by all
The residents they keep.

And those may never understand
Nor fully comprehend
How much the labors of the night
To their recovery lend.

We may not know them all by name.
We may not see their face.
But for their service we're in debt
And owe them all our praise.

John Callas has left us
On wings of light.
He travels swiftly,
Now lost from sight.

Continuing onward,
All troubles behind,
Love surely drawing him,
Life's hopes to find.
And this insight brings us
Solace of mind.
