Land Of Good And Plenty

 

Land Of Good And Plenty
By Christine Hare Tate
~

Land of good and plenty
blessed with fertile soil,
her landlord was well pleased
with the bounty from her toil.


She gradually flourished
through many generations
becoming a beacon light
for many foreign nations.

She dismissed the overseer
who protected her fine land,
thinking she was smart enough
without him in command.


Her land began producing
ugly thorns and weeds
because she soon forgot
the landlord’s wondrous deeds.

She still hasn’t asked him
to take over his position,
and her land is suffering
from a case of malnutrition.

Only the wise landlord
can save her land today…
land of good and plenty
please call on him and pray!
