Life Then And Now - Poem by Marilyn Lott
It seemed that in years in the past
Life back then was pretty cut and dry
Working all week, praying on Sunday
And they never thought to ask why
As you look at old pictures
Folks worked hard in the cotton fields
They were baptized on Sunday
When bodies and souls were healed
Automobiles brought access to town
It became a place for them to gather
Can you imagine how important it was?
Unhampered by distance or bad weather
And now the crops are done today
By huge and powerful machines
There is much more to offer farmers
With easier and better means
But something is lost too, I think
We’re so busy with the present day
In some ways life was better back then
We don’t always find a better way!
