Cherry Fields in the Ghetto


there is a ghetto
not of economical
but of spiritual poverty
where people lack faith
and then they planted
the cherries
with pits
wonderful sweet fruit
for the taking
and the people
planted more fruit
and it was economical
and they came for the sweet fruit
and everyone clapped
that a God so wonderful
could grow the sweet cherries
right under our noses
a ghetto of spiritual poverty
nobody understood God
nobody knew Mother Nature
but they began learning
and dropped their belief
of money and greed
giving God a chance
to grow a wonderful garden
and the children saw it
the teachers saw it
people danced near the cherries
intoxicated by cherries
not a money poverty
but a spiritual birth
of new life
in a garden of strife
but they got the message
right under their noses
God helped the people see
a day of planting
cherries

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
