We Gather Together; the Economic Version

by Fred Foldvary, 2012

We gather together, as thanks for our blessings.
Remember the lesson the Pilgrims did learn.
They first reaped in common, and then they found out,
That keeping what you sow, is the best way to earn.

The Pilgrims at first, they were communist thinkers.
They thought that the Lord wanted all to be shared.
Then they had no harvest, and they faced starvation.
To work for all the rest, was not what they cared.

A meeting they held, and kept the land common.
But each family could obtain its own plot.
Then they went to work, and the harvest was bountiful.
This economic lesson should not be forgot!
