Food, Fabric & Economics

Many are nesting on dreams of change

Buried leaves and trimmed branches

While well rooted the situations remains.

Attending to each incident in isolation

With mass media defining how

All others should perceive the situation.

A tidy thread within the social fabric

Is all some aspire to become

Though their unraveling is systematic

So caught up with food security

While ignoring what falls to rot

Under bountiful fruiting trees.

Economics create a fictional poverty

And foreign food aid is not

The only viable solution necessarily

While we all are altered individually

Consuming our daily demise to be

Changed, chemically and psychologically.

Being genetically modified into submission

Causes no surprise at the docility,

Slow to improve the human condition.
