Cooked rice in plate,
Still the steam does emit.
On chair I did cling,
Waited my wife curry to bring.

Beyond the plate, I eye
The farm of anxiety,
Where the farmers sow
The seeds for morrow.

Hot rice brings to the mind
The paddy field pined,
And the debt cankered peasants
Creep among the plants.

Holding the rusty scythes
And bending like the scythes,
The darkened women sing throat opened,
And the folk song vibrate my mind.

Cooked rice still steamy
And white purely
As the mind of farmer,
The climate and price fall boiled ever.

Born to toil in the soil,
Farmers return to the soil
To feed the worm princes,
Hanging on a rope hopeless.

When my dear curry brought,
I painfully thought:
No life without farm ;
Without farmers no farm.

    What an innocent image a mound of rice makes, eh? The toil and pain back of it comes to mind, eh? Fine work, Fabiyas. Congrats on the selection. daver
