The Common

Jane and Paul think that farming
is like their college foodservice,
that little lunch-ladies swoop the
peas, corn, carrots and buckwheat
into harvest buckets before marketing
to the general and hungry public;
they believe that agriculture mimics
their elitist collegian multiculturalism,
that it desegregates the 3-field system
into one field that has stopped rotating
and continually loses its fertility, for
separate but equal is inherently unequal
and every field needs a fair chance.
