Chemical Eden Of Shelf Life Goods - Poem by Kevin Patrick

Enter the garden: of commerce labour
Here taste the fruit under sunlight fluorescents
You can find verity in one or two choices
Vegetation sterilized polished lit synthetics

Come taste the fruit in shelf life groves
Arrayed in the nature of alphabetic order
Apricots opposite peaches and plums
Keep red separate from tangerines and oranges

Cellophane wraps on prepackaged lettuce
Enhance the flavour with plastic vigour
Genetically modified red beef tomatoes
Could give your children a taste for a tumor

It's a chemical Eden disguised as produce
Quick sterile minerals is synthetic nutrition
With modified cornstarch Gluten conditioned
You hardly realized your biologist reduced

To shelf life goods


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I read an article in Mcleans (May 14,2012) about a women who decided to stop eating food and buying products from super markets and in a month her body had reduced concentrations of toxic waste. Then I went to the supermarket the other day and I thought about her. It was actually about breast as a matter of fact, the article not the supermarket
