TELL MY PEOPLE TO GO HOME (Part II)

the dark
young gardener,
pruning,
sneaks a pomegranate,
ripe and sweet,
I see him,
he's a guest here
and he sneaks
a pomegranate
ripe and sweet
a guest here
for six months
a year
the dark,
young gardener,
smooth and hard,
works his pruning shears,
long and sharp,
ripe and sweet,
and he says,

"tell my people
to go home
I miss my
family
I miss my
own land"

I've seen him
through the window
pane
it's a pleasure
to watch him
work
the garden,
ripe and sweet
please
stay a little longer
I will make you Queen
see his fingers
how they touch
the leaves
how they handle
the stems
see he knows
all that's green
