Did you ever stop to think, that very
bite of your most relished food,
Could be a chemical cocktail laced with
No amount of rigorous vegetable, fruit
washing or cooking,
Will make your plate safer than its now
We are forever counting calories,
But what about this monster please?
Pesticides are a slow poison,
Camouflaged in daily food eaten
For no crime of yours,
Your life and generations after exposed.
Indiscriminate spraying of pesticides,
Leads to grave diseases and farmer
Nowhere to hide or to run,
For the damage has already been done.
Unless you try the latest fad,
The answer to in farming for all things
Organic farming they say,
Is the great new safer way.
Combined with age-old wisdom and recipes
To kill pests,
Yet retain fruit and vegetable goodness
at its best.
Authentic organic the label says,
But how to validate that claim nobody
Can you simply trust organic labels,
Priced much higher than the normal staples? …
