Sunday Whirligig, the given words.
reach, farming, seeds, sprout, corn
rise, enters, flows, dung, vine
moles (small furry mammal that lives
in passages underground)
3WW given words:
kneel nasty purr
To reach forth into commercial convenience
Farming long the target of the big players
GMO seeds surreptitiously distributed
Availability assured and products standardized
Those that sprout from the ground appeared similar
The corn reminiscent of those produced before
But it gave rise to concerns for the poor farmers
For replanting from last season's crops were
not possible for genetically engineered plants
But still allowed to enter the market in constant flows
where 80% of those on the kitchen tables were their kind
Were they not 'poisonous'?
Were they safe for children?
Were they better than organic seeds
grown healthy with animal dung?
Moles below ground were not threatened?
Lots of nasty questions but those able
to give answers kept themselves mum
No more rumors now along the vines!
Big money spun by the big corporations
for their coffers with ostensibly valid
arguments for retaining GMO items
were plainly shameful.
Consumers were kept in the dark and
wherever possible made to kneel in
subjugation to antics of the commercial
giants that controlled the markets
Consumers were kept in silence with
perhaps purrs of a kitten innocently
satisfied but being slowly 'poisoned'
