Food Crisis

Thousands of acres
Planted and harvested by GPS,
Fields of perfectly straight lines,
Abundant food,
Yet more is less.

No footprints between, no human being,
No weather-lore, no winter store,
No human hand, no rested land:
Just perfect veg all year round.
Grown and flown from Africa,
Picked, wrapped and packed by machine.
Imperfect food abandoned:
Vegetable crisis in profit blindness.

This fucked up world –
How can millions drown
In a sea of perfect veg?
