#save the farmer

Save the farmer 

the only one  

to breathe the earth 

what is dirt to you 

is to him a treasure. 

Save him who alone values water 

what carries waste for you 

is to him the elixir.

Save the farmer

who still beseeches the clouds 

what is to the rest of the world a nuisance 

is to him the divine manna from heaven.

Save the farmer 

spend more on farm produce 

let him send his children to school 

let his wife too have some leisure

let him also breathe easy.

Save the farmer 

for he alone is the care taker of the morrow

the atlas who holds afloat the what we flaunt so casually

break his back 

to be broken in due course.

PS: Why so insensitive to farmers? At what cost?
