The Black Prince

As the Black Prince feasted in Carcassonne
One can only imagine,
No matter plague, nor warfare;
The hot sun, vineyards and wine
Had never ceased through time's elapse.
Nor ever shall.

Agricultural revolution

A new agricultural revolution
Will only ensue
If we begin a cultural revolution.
We must pursue
The only novel available solution.
Therefore I imbue
That we dine on insects reared in farms.

Plant breeding has taken us so far
But yields plateau.
Animal farming has been spread too far.
And it shows,
As the climate changes due to pollution.
We must sow
The seeds of this new revolution.

Insects are the only novel solution,
A true agricultural revolution.

Bye bye Benedict

About time,
This decrepit man resigns.
In his time,
Infirm but firm,
As his medieval cult
Turns a blind eye
To choice, freedom and love.

Look at the stars

When you look at the stars
What do you see?
I see plates of algae.
And like sun splashes,
Bright green flashes.
Microscopy sure beats
Molecular biology.
And makes a PhD.
