A Nourished Nation to Dwell
By David Smith February 20, 2010
More action at the Regal than the Farmers Market today;
The crisp, cool weather, keeps the spirit at play.
The barber is clippie, the warmth in his shop.
The Main Street atmosphere; people congregate here a lot.
The market is slow, waiting for spring to bloom.
And in the meantime; at the market is room.
Vast empty space, three vendors there be;
The butcher is quiet; trends are changing we see.
Get back to grass roots; the farmer;
The basics, for the food chain;
The food industry, the breadbasket;
For our nourishment and gain;
Support the farmer, the foundation for life.
That helps and control hunger and strife.
Look, after the pennies,
The dollars take care of themselves.
Look after the farmer;
A well fed nation to dwell.
