Rural Life

The first documentary, in stark

Black and white,

Is about farmers on the left,

Females and males.

They have blue tractors.

All their land is barren.

Their cows give no milk.

The second documentary, in color,

Is about the farmers on the right,

Men and women.

They have red tractors,

Bounteous crops,

Cows giving fresh milk.

The blue farm

Is rigidly controlled,

Above rules.

The red farm respects

Farmers’ and

Townspeople’s initiative.

Which Bequeaths joy

To future generations

And which leaves many

Lifetimes of pain?
