What's all this about wanting
Peas on Earth all the time?
What's wrong with corn, or carrots?
Why don't we ever wish for "World Broccoli!"?
Or ask our children for a little "Cucumbers
Why is it, when we're troubled,
we never pray for "Inner Apricots"?
How did this incredible obsession
It might just be, however:
that if everybody gardened;
they'd all get along
with most of their neighbors.
