"Farming: 101"
Press of The Radical Poet | 11/24/02 | Stan Simons

"Farming: 101"

Even when I'm at my best
I've learned
I'm a poor example
Where Christ's concerned
So, I asked Him why He doesn't choose
Perfect vessels for His use
Then He showed me
His perspective:
"...My child" He said,
- You forget:
There was but, - ONE pattern
That was: "...A Perfect Fit"
So I let each field grow
And see what's of use
For a season or two
I'll accept an "Excuse"
But if I come to collect
And find no fruit
I check to see if there's
Any root
- If all it does it drink
Of My rain
...I plow it under
And plant again!
