Oh’ how rolls that deep blue sea
What tales it could tell you and me
Its constant rolling, its breaking spray

    Very well written David. There is a lot to be said for the way we used to farm. Not only did it provide employment for many it also provided community spirit. We ate well and we kept fit. We were strong and we were healthy. We were self reliant. We worked in harmony with nature not against it. Nowadays we poison the land and waterways. We poison the earth. We poison the wildlife. We poison ourselves and each other. Monsanto play a major part in this through their seeds and pesticides. We are killing our world and all the good it contains.
    Thank you for your words. (Report) Reply
