Son of a Farmer

“Everything is connected. That bond is what keeps this Planet dancing round in poetic choreography. That connection is what keeps us all alive. What we do to the Earth, we do to ourselves. If we are capable of destruction, we are most certainly capable of healing. ” – Eric Herm

Eric Herm, (organic farmer, author, activist and musician) translates modern day agriculture and life through various mediums and venues in his own unique West Texas manner. With plow, pen, guitar and sarcastic wit, Herm plunges forward into a world of tumbleweeds, sandstorms, droughts, GMOs, and rural existence.

GIVE SEEDS A CHANCE

© 2011 by Eric Herm

Everybody talking ’bout

herbicide, pesticide, fungicide, inside, outside

Roundup, 2,4-D, atrazine

poison is as poison does

All we are saying is give seeds a chance

All we are saying is give seeds a chance

Everybody talking ’bout

corn, cotton, canola, soybeans, alfalfa,

tomatoes, potatoes,

no more genetic-modified bye-bye, bye-bye

All we are saying is give seeds a chance

All we are saying is give seeds a chance

Everybody talking ’bout

GMOs, Monsanto, politicos, Syngenta,

Bayer Crop, DuPont, Dow Chemical

corporations selling nations toxic genes

All we are saying is give seeds a chance

All we are saying is give seeds a chance

Everybody talking ’bout

environment, government, locavore, herbivore,

carnivore, existence, resistance, pollution, solution

this is a brand new food revolution

All we are saying is give seeds a chance

All we are saying is give seeds a chance
