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.
