Bread is stupid food.


yet I eat a little every day.
People have to
Clear the ground
Hack the earth
Sow the seeds
Scare the birds
Pull the weeds
Pray for sun
Curse the rain
Mow and carry
thresh and store
and lose a fifth to rats
Then grind
and mix and bake
and eat -
so much labour
for such little nutrition:
the production of bread
is a war of attrition.

(And meat which is fed
on grain is sheer perdition.)
