CASSAVA TEARS

in steemstem •  6 months ago

Standing by my cassava farm
And seeing the leaves green, the roots firm
And how like soldiers in parade they sway
To the soft music in a happy day
Their thousand heads in disorderly array
Vying for a sunray

To a beauteous seas serene
Of scented leaves and flower
My soul goes out after
Like unto Flanders Field
To which ‘tis bound to yield

Compelled I picked a leaf
From Natures’ exotic sheaf
To deck my feathered grief
O fly away grief !

But at the sight of blood
And tears that stick to my hand,
White and black like spider’s web;
My heart sank to bare sand. I wept
Not knowing why you did weep
So bitterly in my hand

And listening to your story
Fills me with pity
O, cassava like you
I sourly weep too
For your daily mouthful
The world is unthankful
They’ll stand in judgment
And what I fear most is that moment grave
When Cassava may go on strike
For being denied her harvest rite.

Cassava is good with butter. I believe it's better than having rice. It's gluten-free too!

I am pretty sure #steemstem is not for creative writing.

Good poem, though.
