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.
