Strawberry Field

Down in the valley

Sunny day

Harvesting strawberries

Picking away

There was the storyteller

Old and grey

Picking away

With something to say

“I was born up there Theresa”

“I had everything, did anything.”

“The world laid out before me”

Grinning and gay

Humming away


“It wasn’t long though”

“I saw the mirage”

“It’s an oppressive system of economics”

“Without the words of Jesus”

Quick hand to mouth gesture

He chewed at a berry

Picking away

On a sunny day
