Maize, wheat, beans failed –

droughts and flooding all contributing to

a dust-bowl economy,

a cornucopia of want and malnutrition.

Catastrophic failure of governments

with geopolitical grabs of land and water

while speculators grew fatter and fatter

on pork belly futures and biofuel fields.

Staples disappeared in the third world

whilst first world stomach stapling thrived.
