Than Anywhere Else on Earth

Bad poetry isn't necessarily bad poetry; it's all a matter of context. I saw a terrible poem in the window of an abandoned building ...
"The kiss of the sun for a pardon
The song of the bird for mirth
You are nearer to god in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth"
The weeds growing through concrete cracks were lovely poetry even if the words were not.
