The Rot

They estimate a gradual decline
in worldly production by
the lessening of the harvest,
and grain shall be in want,
but greed shall halt it from
reaching the world's market places.
And one man controls
the rot of the field-
ending with the
rot of the flesh.
And political strongholds
shall fail to prevail,
and the thunder roars-
the rain comes in tub fulls-
and the rot continues,
until flesh and grain
have become compost...
for the next springs plantings.
