HARVeST - HYMN '

A poem by John Betjeman - photo by AStenning.

We spray the fields and scatter
The POison on the ground
So that no wicked wild flowers
Upon our farm be found.
We like whatever helps Us
To line our purse with pence:
The twenty - four - hour broiler - house
And neat eLECTric fence.

All concrete sheds around us
And Jaguars in the yard,
The telly lounge and deep - freeze
Are ours from working hARD.

We fire the fields for harvest,
The hedges swell the flame,
The oAK trees and the cottages
From which our fathers came.
We give no compensation,
The earth is ours toDAY,
And if we lose on arable,
Then bungalows will pay.

All concrete sheds . . . . . eTc.

Vegetables are great, but the Heart Start Defibrillator is better (At saving your life, that is ;) ).

I really like your blog andrewstenning. I was surfing the search engines for purse and handbag related websites using the keyword christian dior purse and found your awesome page with the title 'HARVeST - hymn' . .. I am looking for ideas on how to improve my own site using different keywords and was amazed how easy it was to find your site using the keyword christian dior purse. Perhaps we could do a link exchange at some point. Anyway, thanks for your time and I’m glad I found your site.
