Farming as a terrorist act

Going on down to the demos today the last farmer has been put away. They shot him down just outside of town. Police found him in his own cornfield, where he resisted and refused to yield. Since his were crimes against the state, then death obviously was to be his fate. Going on down to the demos today the last farmer has been put away. He refused to buy corn from the corporation, produced his own seeds for his liberation. He refused to buy genetic sprays to eliminate the bugs and the butterflys. By his wanton self pollination he threatened the food supply of our nation. We're going on down to the demos today to give thanks to those who put terrorists away.

This reminds me of a documentary movie I watched. It's insanity that farmers aren't allowed to save their own seed! It's population control and a big money maker. Thanks for sharing this. You did a great job conveying your message in poetic form!

I love your poem and I support the farmer even though the struggle is not mine I can relate to the cause and his stance. Well done for motivating us!
