The Legend of Saint Wiggles

Kevin, HKA's resident lyricist and poet, just shared this original work with the team to keep us in good holiday cheer, and we're sharing with you.  We hope you enjoy this holiday "tail" of Wiggles (Wigz), our office cat, as much as we did.

By Kevin Twer

Twas the week before Christmas, and throughout HKA
All the elves were a' pitching, 'cause we roll that-a-way
Kevin was focused, in his usual style
With Brian outside, hoping to stay for awhile

Computers were humming, not an issue was found
So Layne checked out early, he wasn't around
The office was tranquil, the employees content
Even Hilary was able to get invoices sent

When out of the blue, we heard a strange noise
So loud it disrupted Kristina's everyday poise
We sprang to our feet, and abandoned our digs
Thinking we might catch a glimpse of St. Wigz

Until then he was legend, just a thought in our heads
Someone we dreamed of when tucked snug in our beds
But this was no dream, St. Wigz was right there
Excitedly frozen, we did nothing but stare

Glad to be with us, St. Wigz seemed to be
Not scared like a cat that gets stuck in a tree
And so we all stood there, locked in our gaze
It was like time wasn't moving, and minutes were days

Something had to be done to change up the mood
What should we do, should we offer Wigz food?
But Wigz took the lead and jumped onto a chair
And he actually spoke, making us fully aware

Now Masters and Langsdorf, Magana and Drew
Sarenas and Caldwell, I bring wishes to you
And Vogen's away, please deliver my call
Merry Christmas to each – Happy New Year to all

What we all witnessed, a miracle indeed
A cat that can talk? What’s next, can he read?
And then without out warning, St. Wigz was away
His visit amazing, though brief was his stay

As he raced out the door, his voice once again heard
We sat there in silence to grab every word
I love you all, he bellowed with power and might
And you’re all in my dreams as day turns to night

Not every office has a resident lyricist and poet. HKA is fortunate indeed. Kevin has penned two song parodies in support of Susan G. Komen and now unveiled the Legend of St. Wiggles for HKA. What's next Kev?
