Commercial Compost

marketers place rocks
in the rubbers of slingshots

define need: your dad
can beat up my dad

muscular and well-rested
yours can afford fresh vegetables

oh plentiful soil
I call upon the wisdom of worms

slithering underground civilization
thrives on the waste of buckets

inside the firmament of dirt
