HYBRIDISATION OF SEEDS .. THE BEST SEEKING THE BEST

HYBRIDISATION OF SEEDS .. THE NEST SEEKING THE BEST

STEPPING OUT THROUGH MY KITCHEN DOOR
IN MY BACK GARDEN I DO SEE
SOME TURMERIC HERE
SOME LEMONS THERE
SOME TREES OF MANGO I DO SEE.
I GAVE AND GAVE .. TO ALL MY FRIENDS ..
MANGOES OF EVERY SIZE 
AS THIS YEAR I TOOK .... A SABBATICAL 
FROM THE MAKING OF CHUTNEYS .... LOVED SO MUCH.

I WAS IN WONDER AND AMAZEMENT 
AT THE BEAUTY OF OUR FOOD,
SOME FARMER DID CREATE IT BY MIXING 2 AND 2
A MIXING AND A MATCHING
CREATED OUT OF PERFECT THOUGHT.

IT CAME TO ME RIGHT OUT OF THE BLUE
AS I SAW MY GINGER AND TURMERIC
GROWING SIDE BY SIDE ... AND ...
THE NEXT PLANT WAS GALANGAL
MANGO GINGER TO YOU.

HYBRID .. THE TERM THAT COMES TO MIND
IN IT ITS OWN GOOD ... GIVING MORE OF FLAVOUR
TO ME ...  FOR MY  THAI GREEN CURRY.
IT NEVER COULD TASTE SO GOOD ..
WITHOUT A TEMPERING OF 2 FLAVOURS 
COMING TOGETHER AS ONE.

OH YOU SILLY PEOPLE ...
STOP BANGING YOUR FOOLISH HEADS
ON GENETICALLY MODIFIED SEEDS  ..
THE LIKES OF WHICH ARE
CREATED FOR OUR FUTURE 
MORE STURDIER GENETIC CODES
MORE FOOD FOR ALL PERHAPS
NO ONE NEED .. EVER GO HUNGRY AGAIN.

LET ME JUST PUT IT ANOTHER WAY
DID YOU EVER STOP TO PONDER 
THAT YOU MIGHT STILL BE AN APE 
IF YOUR GENES HADN'T GOTTEN STRONGER
A MIXING OF DNAS .. OF THE WEAK WITH THE STRONG
PRODUCING A STURDIER GENOME .. 
OF A MIX AND MATCH  .. OF RICH AND POOR
BLENDING TO CREATE A MIDDLE CLASS.

OR DOES THAT THOUGHT NOT COME TO MIND
WHEN YOU FLIP AND FLOP FROM SIDE TO SIDE
DOES A WALRUS COME TO MIND
A SAGE HE AIN'T
AND YET HIS LOOKS CAN BELIE.
