Parable of the Weeds

Parable of the Weeds: Matthew 13.24-30

Some seed was grown in the countryside,

genetically modified.

An enemy there at eventide,

(as specified, in the parable)

sowed

WEEDS!

The plants grew up and multiplied,

Bore grain, and all were satisfied,

But then the mood intensified,

(As someone spied, among the plants )

those

WEEDS!

Suggestions came in nationwide,

“Let’s spray the plants with fungicide,

or use some neat insecticide,

Gather in the crops! Weeds

cannot

hide?"

“No, Wait! Oh!

Let our timing coincide,

when reapers who are qualified;

will burn the weeds, in bundles, tied;

and set our grain aside

at

HARVEST-TIDE."
