Prenatal Farming

Unable to raise the very seed you planted Unattached from your attachment Cheap talk followed by hallowed out lies Words without follow through have no effect on growth Untrustworthy soil poisoning the garden Leaving the seed to wonder, Whether or not it is better off without you No purpose for pesticidal love Absence does not look so bad Stunted growth as a result of misuse You have foiled and disrespected the seed, The offspring from your very own loin Never again will another farmer trust you, Their livestock deserves better
