–a found poem
For many years the two churches had little
To do with each other
Though they were of the same faith
And separated by a very little distance.
The pastor of the Bethlehem church tried
To get the two to unite.
The churches voted on this matter.
Then trouble arose—
Should the new church be called
Bethlehem or Calvary.
They could not agree
And more friction and trouble came up.
Finally the minister gave up all hope
Of uniting them.
Perhaps when some of the older members die
They can be brought together.
