Sock it to Me

Words fail me...but not for long

Words fail me…but not for long

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

  1. Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you got till it’s gone…………..

  2. Tell Monsanto we know how
    To make our socks feel fresh. You see
    We wash them in some soapy water
    Which keeps them naturally odour free.

  3. Maybe you should just stick to the ones Mrs Snail of Happiness knits you – much more ecologically sound! Lol

  4. We need to write a song
    for how to get over the pong
    The smells that make dogs smile
    can be sniffed for almost a mile
    Chemicals kill that niff
    but make everything else go stiff
    Like Ms Pauline says
    It isn’t much of a maze
    Just wash your socks every day
    and that stink will just ebb away
    The things that we allow them to do
    in the name of some fluff in a shoe!

Put pen to paper (well, fingers to keyboard)...
