A Cabbage Patch

Published by Susan on 08/09/2003 (2766 reads)
Folk ask if I'm alive...

Folk ask if I'm alive,
       Most think I'm not;
Yet gaily I contrive
       To till my plot.
The world its way can go,
      I little heed,
So long as I can grow
       The grub I need.

For though long overdue,
       The years to me,
Have taught a lesson true,
       --Humility.
Such better men than I
       I've seen pass on;
Their pay-off when they die;
       --Oblivion.

And so I mock at fame,
       With books unread;
No monument I claim
       When I am dead;
Contented as I see
       My cottage thatch
That my last goal should be
       --A cabbage patch.
