Nationhood -/- Agriculture

11:1
Nationhood

Qualities of coveted commonwealths;
Wealth, safety, fertility

Noble nations never know
Starvation, epidemics, enemies

Sweeping curtailers of population;
Disease, famine, war

Nations utilise available resources;
Manpower, minerals, farms

***

Each country’s ideological constructs
Inhabitants deem natural

Nations containing natural resources
Prosperity effortlessly attain.

As chaos consumes nations
Patriotic fervour born


11:2
Agriculture

Patriotic ploughshares stockpiling supplies
Society’s sequacious support

Farmers lynchpinning dinner tables
Invigorate mendicant invalids

On agricultarlists folding arms
Even ascetics starve

When idleness pleads poverty
Mother Earth amused

***

Tho’ easier vocations exist
Everyone can farm

Ploughing, fertilizers, irrigaton, fences:
Cultivates furrow’d crops

Horticulture engenders valuable fibres;
Health, happiness, honour


11:3
Community

Mannamilking multitudinous human beings
Social conscious forms

Antagonistic clashes between classes
Realizes revolutionary reconstitution

Constant locavorian vigilance creates
Community’s unbreakable stickbundles

Wherever Humanity grows hungry
Send hoarded grain

***

Energy activates community continuation
Lethargy promotes collapse

Prosecute society’s secret cabals
Vigilance educates resistance

Stable society’s uppermost bonus –
Ghostly lonelinesses cured


11:4
Villages

Villages lacking fitting leaders
Wildernesses amidst fertilities

Incoming strangers’ unknown qualities
Bedsoil potential ruin

Kings we can decieve
But neighbours never

A village it taketh
To raiseth bambinos

***

Where crowds cross rivers
Crocodiles keep distances

Our homes catch fire
Ignoring neighbours’ blazes

Thirty rotating wheel spokes
Single hubs share
