I rushed out to our lemon tree, it was do or die!
There stood the tree, yes, all covered with lemons,
But the sight that I saw, left me in a dilemma!
Only one tiny lemon had a touch of yellow!
The rest were as green as a package of lime jello!
Dashing back in the house, I thought my problem solved,
I’d make a cherry pie;--at least that’s what I vowed!
I opened up, the hinged door of my freezer.
After all, the cherry pie would be easier!
There seemed to be many different things in there;
Not a single cherry, “Life just isn’t fair!”
Well, I’d make an apple pie. No apples to be found!
I should have salvaged more, when they fell to the ground!
Then, I resolved to make, a chocolate pie;
Just then, a dear neighbor came passing slowly by.
A knock, and I saw, in her outstretched hands,
A perfect, yellow, lemon pie! Just like I had planned!
At last, I had my wishes, for my company.
She had brought that lemon pie, especially for me!
The moral of this little tale? When things are tough;
You’re glad that you shared with your neighbor, just enough.
Now, she came to my aid, when I was in a plight!
So, why do many neighbors, only want to fight?
