Treasure Island

Turning Point


Through the garden gate
waited
steamy and rich
a freshly dumped
pile
of the best manure
in the county

leaning against the garden's
wooden
split
rail fence
was a well used cane
topped
with a wool cap
brought out of habit
from the longest season passed

as she turned in the Earth
on hands and knees
and he silently scooped
the sh*t into the soil
he again realized
that for the 50th consecutive year
they'd eat this horse sh*t later
when it had turned
into squash soup

once planted
they rode back
the farm house waited
and their livestock
chewed
on grasses
and next year's bounty

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
