Every Day Something New - Poem by Pete Crowther

Every day
Something new I learn.
Today it is
That fresh
Well-cultivated grass
Provides ALL the needs
Of the dairy cow
In ideally balanced
And readily
Assimilable form.
For this information
My thanks are due
To the Crown Chemical
Manure Co. Ltd.,
Now alas
Defunct.

    Peter,

    You are so clever! What a great idea too to write a poem every day about some piece of trivia you have learnt.

    Cool dude
    Kind regards

    Sack the PR Dept I say. These day their promo would begin 'Up to now, it has been conveniently assumed in the long-established milk industry that cows only require the basic sustenance of grass - which varies in its nutrients according to the quality of the local soil.
    However an independent survey, sponsored by the Crown Chemical...' etc. What's the point of Public Relations if you speak the truth?
    Great poem with deep ironic subtetx, Pete.
