"Eva Farber's Poems"
by Hardy Parkerson

Eva Farber wrote little poems.
Now Eva Farber's gone.
And 'though Eva's no longer with us,
Her little poems live on.

Eva loved her little poems;
Wanted to share them with you and me;
So she left a simple will
Leaving them to the University.

But the University did not want them:
These simple and heart-felt lays.
They wanted modern poetry,
About lesbians and gays.

So into the dumpster went
As Eva looked down from on high;
And 'though Eva was in Heaven,
Eva began to cry.

As God was passing by, he said,
"Why, Eva, what can be wrong?"
Eva wrung her hands and said,
"They've thrown away my poems!"

God took Eva by the hand;
Said, "Eva, don't you cry!
I've got a good man on Campus down there,
And tonight I'll send him by.

"For he's a dumpster-diver;
And when all on Campus is quiet,
He goes dumpster diving,
Almost every night."

So God sent the dumpster-diver by
To find Eva's little poems;
And the diver went and found them,
And then he took them home.

So Eva's little poems are still with us,
And each evening at close of day
We can still read Eva's little poems:
These humble and heart-felt lays.
