The Fruits On Your Table - Poem by Marites C. Cayetano

The fruits on your table
the sweat of the farmer
as you smile on their sweetness
the farmer counts
his remaining debts.

    A thought provoking poem nicely penned. Despite of the hardwork and hardships encountered by farmers still some of them are living in poverty. (Report) Reply

    Truly, we eat the sweet fruits, but we don't think about the hard labour undergone to make it sweet,
    The farmer labours hard with the loan amount to sweeten the fruits and we eat it with ease.

    A lovely poem conveying a message,
    Loved reading it,
