The organic myth

A crop has never been organic,
organic never was a crop.
To crop implies some modification,
From tiny brown grains to massive yellow cobs.

Ten thousand years to maize from teosinte,
Ten thousand years to modify five genes.
Guided by man's manipulative hand,
Cross-breeding, selecting, and mutating seeds.

No corn, no cob, no carrot, no pea pod,
No bushel of wheat, no barley, no swede,
No tatty, no turnip, no parsnip, no beet,
Nor any of our plethora of domesticated crops...

Have ever been organic,
never will be organic,
And there's no fucking difference
between GM and organic.
