Vine Ripened Tomatoes
What is all this talk
About being “the chosen”?
Everyday I go to my garden
And ‘choose’ the red tomatoes
Leaving the green for when they become ripe.
I am not turning my back on the green ones,
And they have not missed their ‘chance’,
Nor are they of less value to me than the red ones.
Goats and Sheep
Sinners and Saved
Tomatoes and Tomah-toes
I will return to my garden tomorrow
And will ‘choose’ some more that are ripe for the harvest
And so it goes
I ‘choose’ as they are ready
Until my garden is empty
Your mistake is
You think God only goes to his garden once.
God’s a better gardener than that.
