Very Similar - Poem by David Darbyshire

It's like a Garbage-man and his can,
or a Rock-and-roller and his fan.
Like a Seamstress with her Pin's,
could be a Preacher and the Sin's.

It is like the sun and the corn,
being dead or being Born
like pea's in pods or
Fishermen with their rods.

All these things are all very familiar,
also they are very similar.
What would be funny, 'a Preacher with his rod',
A 'garbage-man with a fan', or 'being born in the corn? '
