Mary, Mary

the earthling ferry

had a small basket

in which she carried

good for all man

and hope for a more

peace filled time

for you see

tucked away in her

little white basket

was but this sweet,

little child's rhyme

'From his true self

man can not hide

good lies in one's

preparation for the worst

and knowing that one will

not lose even if one does

not as long as God is his

eternal guide'...........
