More Harvest poems

When the Harvest Fails

When the Harvest Fails:

Misery, hunger, thirst
Anger, distress, cries
Weakness, illness, pity
Kwashiorkor, death
Live aid, charity

When the Harvest Fails, agony!

A Good Harvest
Abundant food in:
Sacks, bags, shops
Baskets, kitchen, pots
Plates, bowls, stomach
Abundant food for you and me!

Market Chant
Come and buy my:
Bananas, kiwi, melon, oranges, strawberries
Cassava, garri, potatoes, rice, yam
Okra, peppers, peas, spinach, sweet corn
Beef, chicken, , mutton, pork, sausages.

One pound a bag!
