On the Road, Unplugged


 Mary, somewhere in the United States

Country roads, scenic vistas, no internet.

There are few places the woeful news doesn’t seep, even here, where the rivers run with fish into the Huron, where the cardinals sit on thistle thrones and where the mockingbirds have never heard a car alarm.

Unfortunately, Monsanto’s footprints are in the corn, they are in the soybeans and the faces of the sunflowers.  They are in the pollen and the hives of bees.

The bees die and the deer grow sterile from pesticides and Roundup Ready modified genes.

The dirty fingers of dirty men are found in everything including our heads.  Don’t buy into it, fight Monsanto and their GMO seeds or the battle is lost.

Praise to El Salvador for taking steps to kick Monsanto and their dirty seeds out the door.

    Go for it, Richard… this poem is your gift to enjoy as you like. 🙂 In response to your other question, I think it’s a fine idea. I am away, presently, so please do feel heard, and I will bookmark this page to remember to connect when I return (soon). How fun.

    Hi Meredith, I’m back, I’d like to post this little poem you wrote on my blog as a guest post. Do you have any issues in my doing so? In fact if I may ask, do you have a couple more that would fit this theme? I’d happy to devote a post to them.
