The Agricultural Life

big animals on the farm
grandma baking bread
sheeps and goats
fed by water pails
I wish to be a veterinarian
and help the animals
I see them cry all the time
worms, disease, pain and suffering
and nobody is going to hold me back
from being a veterinarian
only God
He decides the future
when you are in His will
and I want to be part
of Mother Nature
and plow the heated fields
when it is so dry outside
the bugs try and drink you up
the sun bakes off the banks
of a river filled with fish
and the big animals on the farm
even they get thirsty
pulling the plows
digging the earth
planting for a new birth
fresh fruit on the trees
nobody can steal an apple
God gives them for free
unless Adam and Eve get
caught in a rain storm
I want to plow the fields
and help the oxen
sit beside a caterpillar bug
watch sunflowers laugh at me
and I will be a veterinarian
taking the pulse of goats
and putting in IV drips
into cows that cry
deep into the night
a baby is born in the barn
and is a new baby cow

"Come, pretty birds, present your lays,
And learn to chaunt a goddess praise;
Ye wood-nymphs, let your voices be
Employ'd to serve her deity:
