THE SOIL AND THE FARMER

Your soil was fertile - never ploughed
and you leased it to to vagrant farmer
Ah! He gave no promise, yet you allowed
him wield turgid hoe - wearing no armor!


Lazy farmer planted in jerky eagerness
not waiting to clear your weedy ground
With the seeding came a gentle cloying
and fertile plain turned concave mound


~ from THE SOIL AND THE FARMER (inspired by
Okwy Obu's post)
