The Collard Greens

Everyone in prison isn’t completely bad.

An old black man lived alone in the country. He wanted to dig his yearly
collard green garden, but it was always very hard work for him because
the ground was hard. His only son, Junebug Jankins III, who used to help
him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described
his predicament.

Dear Junebugg Jankins the III,
I am feeling pretty bad because it look like I won’t be able to plant my
collard green garden this year. I’m just getting too old to be digging
up a garden plot. If you were here my troubles would be over. I know you

Dear Daddy Jankins,

could do under the circumstances.

Love Junebugg III
