Being Pineapple

                            You chose me off the the thorny pine lake
                                    And gently place me on a rocking rack,
                   I could breathe the cleanest air above the pile of pineapples
                        You took me off the rack showed me an easy way to go
                                    Made me like the water made me flow,
                 And i was the sweetest fruit for the thirsty and of bitter taste
                                    You made my life a happy song
                                    And took the spikes off my chest
           You made me fly and diffuse my wisdom and then every one followed
                They took me by their mouth and made for themselves freedom
                                      Freed themselves from stunting,
                              Muscled up and helped others cross the street
                       They grew up to raise  kids by pineapple juice and moral feet
                                       Then i knew i was nutritious
                                      I had made the society conscious
                                Because you made me first into that pineapple,
                                   And my juice i serve to Gods people.

                                      (in many ways those moral teachings 
                                 of the bible makes us as human as we should be,
                                     they are all a different fruit to us)- Lucas-
