a poem and prayer

When you are used to eating from a can You might be suspicious of the man Who sells you simple ingredients Without even after dinner mints Lettuce does not grow in bags Eggs aren't made with upc tags Learning how to cook is easy And the result won't make you queasy Watching a pot come to boil Choosing for your loved ones the best oil Friends at your dinner table Is better than any TV fable You and I know good food is good And therefore don't eat what others would But it is so very sad to shop Where cans, bags and boxes stop Let's all stop buying today Where grocers don't do things our way Start a co-op it is quick Before we all start growing sick Join one if there is one near Or we'll starve as I fear Opening boxes bags and cans is hard Let's now play our highest card Support your farmer with some cash And then enjoy some tasty mash!

Some very good advice contained here. There is a complete disconnect between the human consumer and the food producer. Too much of a disconnect. Layers of corporate bureaucracy make the entire journey one of suspicion, of imperfect information, and of ultimately trusting people who have repeatedly and repeatedly demonstrated that they do not care about the common consumer. Good post.
