I best shush up. Ya see al kinds of great folk (Hicks) in the farm markets. Today was a Farmer Market Day. Ya see folk with curly nasal hair, smelly underarm pit-hairs, the corn-stalks dread-lock-curl hairs, a former fed-prosecuting defense attorneys, a former CIA, and other discriminating shoppers. They buy at Farmer Markets. They tell personal stories that seem to speak of Great American Memory Stuff! Ya wonder if some peoples strained confessions are just personal Testimony ... and sad regrets?
Often:`stories of a family past .... the telling .... may be a telling ... to alleviate their own Mind?
I just love to listen to People.
Let the creeps beg god/shrink?
I generally adore every shopper.
Oh, some do harangue to argues?
What's the gripe? What Ya's eating?
You want a third and fourth opinion?
"As through this world I travel
I see lots of funny men
Some'ell rob you with a six-gun,
Some with a fountain pen." Woodie Guthrie,
"Pretty Boy Floyd, The Outlaw." It's plain to see.
Yes! The fountain pen thieves and vultures in DC/Wall Street cahoots are the ones doing the serious stealing. The crooked lobbyist, lawyers, judges, politico's, .... , Vultures overhead, and thugs in politico roles ... O You Get Yours! Adios Chumps! Mutts! Genuine people are mad-as-hell, and fraud DC roosters ... bam, bang, bam, bam, boom boom. Bad boom boom. Woe!
So- Ya hasta a- luego (s) ?
- Mahatma Gandhi wrote:`
To forget to dig the Earth
tend the soil well with care,
that's to forget ourself. (sigh)
- T. Jefferson said (I think of my son's family) :`
Cultivators of the Earth are the most valuable
citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most
independent, the most virtuous, and they are
tied to their country and wedded to its liberty
and interest by the most lasting bands. - T. Jefferson
- Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote:` "The glory of the farmer is that, in the divisions of labors, it is his/her part to create. All trade last on his primitive activity. He/She stands close to Nature; S/he obtains from the soil the bread and the meat. The food which was not, he causes to be." - R.W. Emerson.
Daniel Webster wrote:`Let us never forget that the cultivation of the Earth is the most important labor of humans. When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of salvation. - Daniel Webster.
People are what we eat. Americans are eating too much 'shit' from politico's media broad -castors. We also even ignore the financial cost of this national sickness of eating, and listening to the effects of eating shits!
"To Be of Use." - Marge Piercy.
The people I love the best jump into the work head first without dallying in the shallows and swim off with sure strokes out of sight. They seem to become natives of that element, the black sleek heads of seals bouncing like half-submerged balls.
I love people who harness themselves, an ox to a heavy cart, who pull like water buffalos, with massive patience, who strain in the mud and muck to move things forward, who do what has to be done, again and again.
I want to be with people who submerge in the task, who go into the fields to harvest and work in a row and pass the bags along, who stand in the line and haul in their places, who are not parlor generals and field deserters, but move in common rhythm when the food must come in or the fire be put out.
The work of the world is common as mud.
Botched, it smears the hands, crumbles to dust.
But the thing worth doing well done has a shape,
and it satisfies, clean and evident, Greek amphoras
Hopi vases that held corn are put in museums
but you know they were made to be used.
The pitcher cries for water to be carried
and a person for work that is real. - To Be Of Use. - Marge Piercy.
