Soil of Purpose | மண் பயனுற

By and | 31 October 2020

Do away with plastic flowers
Spray no poison in the wide field
Avoid the fruit untouched by insects
Ward off the factories’ smog
Cleave not the atom’s core
Build not on estuary sand
For the soil to prosper
There is nothing you need to do
And if guilt stabs you anyway
Ignore the building interest
But just return the principal:
Plant the shade-tree’s seed
And offer the body as compost
