The Cherry & Berry Metaphor

To all the hurried and worried, I've got a story to share
It is without swearing, I swear it,
so I announce and declare it.
It is not scary or hairy, even your kids could have heard it.
It is about how I married fine berry to cherry,
the freshest fruits on the ferry.
They're well like Sally and Harry.
Begin the tale of the fairy, berry just carried the cherry,
but one day, I killed cherry
Fatal emergency, but we were emerging, see?
I took her to my stomach, but inside she started hurting me.
I decided to bury the berry also inside of me
so that like in the tale of the fairy,
the berry could bury cherry personally.
Life's not like poetry, no game of Monopoly.
I was hoping they're joking, but inside they started choking me,
internally provoking me, but I was supposed to be
their very last hope, so we
unified, other oughtta get close to me
'cause I started digesting the berry and cherry happily
my belly be their Machiavelli, the 
metaphor of the scary occurency
that we call life in which death happens eternally,
but life's and death's the same,
believe me, you can see easily,
feeling the digesting process of your body frequently.
It's bringing the consciousness from nonsense
to the consequence of dying very happily.

Thanks a lot!

Still not fully sure about the part "other oughtta get close to me".
But the rest seems accurate!

I wasn't sure about it either, so I just left what you had. It could be "after I let 'em get close to me." You can change it to something else if you want.

Thanks for the suggestions!
Well, "after I let 'em get close to me" at least makes sense, even if the singer stumbles over a lot of syllables there.
