My last post got me thinking about a lot of things and I started thinking about how many activist sites I had seen run by various students and yuppy-types who seemed to have zero understanding of the world and have a naive idealism that results in ideas for policies which are either useless or destructive. It inspired me to put pen to paper, or rather, fingers to keyboard in an attempt to capture my thoughts on them. I’m not normally a poet kind of guy, but here goes…
They said don’t buy the coffee.
Grown by Colombian poor.
The companies exploit them.
So we don’t buy it anymore.
And the coffee had no buyers.
Thanks to our great campaign.
The farmers don’t grow coffee.
Instead, they grow cocaine.
Yeah I know… I’m not very poetic but it mostly rhymes
