If I were rich, I’d buy some land
Where, as a gardener, I could stand
On God’s good earth and feel alive
While letting other creatures thrive.
Though little gardens can be great,
One needs, alas, a small estate
Comprising an organic farm,
If one’s to help reverse the harm
That fools with pesticides have done;
And then the GM monster stun.
In short, since words I hate to mince,
I’d try to echo the Green Prince.
