SMACK in the Face

I speak of cash crops, refined 
apothecary powders (staples really) bought to
sate, to feed the scarred artery and the
diseased mind, the lover and the slave.
I speak of madness.

    Relevant piece, Geoffery. It's so much easier to take a pill than to work at changing our habits. Well done! Hugs, Donna

    Some manufacturers/growers will produce anything just to make a buck. Indeed, this is madness and your poem is right on target. Thanks also for your words to Colleen Forest. I was so dismayed to see the poems Forest wrote for Yoni and me today. This is a place to share and grow with literary interest. How sad it is that we can't stop mean-spirited people from invading the Soup. Love, Carolyn
