dichotomy poem # 1

dichotomy poem # 1

some news is heartening they’re
closing roads in the shawnee forest
for the next two months so that
critters that creep crawl slide
slither may go from summer homes
to winter hideouts with no danger
of being smished by treads and tires
some news is disheartening there’s
a recent pesticide on the market it
aids monsanto gmo soybeans natch
but drifts over other fields makes them
unfit for agriculture a huge number
of ruined acres was on today’s news
the only mitigation of this horror is
that arkansas has just banned it the
epa shouldn’t have allowed dicamba
to happen but there’s no epa anymore
unless hiding under a stone somewhere
chewing on what’s left of its fingernails
