I don’t write poetry very often (and you can see why):
When Joni Mitchell sang “put away that DDT”
“Give me spots on my apples and the birds and the bees”
I have to say I absolutely agree
You can’t kill nature chemically.
Monsanto and their buddies have patented the soil
You sign up to them – wadda ya get for your toil
The answer, my friend, makes my blood boil
They make you spray your field with leftover oil!
I know “Big Everything” only cares about its stocks
Value for its shareholders, for its ever-faithful flocks
I didn’t think they could invent any more shocks
BUT NOW THEY’RE PUTTING BIOCIDE IN MY SODDING SOCKS!!
