What would you do if...

Post by Breezey Breezey on Tue Aug 02, 2016 9:14 am

You and all others were told you can no longer save seeds from plants and can't grow your own food...even a small garden? ( you had to buy it all from a corporation)?

Well, it seems it could be possible...or not. 
Not sure how anyone would enforce it...maybe a fine or something for finding a home garden?

Can you imagine trying to buy seeds or potting supplies, etc...if having a garden was not allowed?

LOL mutiny would be great for a few things already happening! 

I'd still have a garden, even if it was declared illegal.

I sometimes wonder if it isn't already a project under way to get people to depend on buying all food since many less already plant their gardens or provide any food for themselves. Many have become ignorant enough to tell you to buy your meat rather than harm an animal!

Ignorant all right.. Sorry.. but as an ex farmer.. I find that ridiculous that people don't realise that the meat they eat from supermarkets or from the butchers has harmed an animal.. It may come in a much better looking package but the animal was still slaughtered for human consumption. It's a bit like people who have no idea where there milk originates. From a bottle!!!

Let's not forget chocolate milk comes from brown cows! lol 

Seriously, it seems to me that many learn a lot less about feeding themselves and just assume food comes from shelves and fridges.

I guess being in a country environment here.. living in a farming community.. heaps of people are self sufficient. It's when you go to the big smoke that people think that everything is "grown" in a shop.

Yep..and farmers seem to be less and less while city people seem to be more and more.
It's sad.

It is sad.. What can be even sadder is that a lot of city folk think that farmers could do so much better by having an office job... and that us farmers waste our lives living out in the middle of no where.. lol.. yet they visit where we live to "get away" from the rush of the city and envy us for the beauty of nature we live amongst. Irony at it's best

Yes, irony... including the fact if nobody farmed, where would food come from except Monsanto?

It's all about a bunch of farmers talking about the seasons.. It is quite funny.. It is set back in olden times.. hence being a poem my pa loved.. The accent the poem is written in is Irish.. I reckon you would enjoy it Breezey, since you are into poetry..
Note.. It states "Back of Bourke".. meaning way out in the driest part of Australia... in case you read it and wonder what they are referring to there.

You are right, Lorry. I like this poem! smile2
SAID HANRAHAN

"We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan,
In accents most forlorn,
Outside the church, ere Mass began,
One frosty Sunday morn.
The congregation stood about,
Coat-collars to the ears,
And talked of stock, and crops, and drought,
As it had done for years.
"It's lookin' crook," said Daniel Croke;
"Bedad, it's cruke, me lad,
For never since the banks went broke
Has seasons been so bad."
"It's dry, all right," said young O'Neil,
With which astute remark
He squatted down upon his heel
And chewed a piece of bark.
And so around the chorus ran
"It's keepin' dry, no doubt."
"We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan,
"Before the year is out.
"The crops are done; ye'll have your work
To save one bag of grain;
From here way out to Back-o'-Bourke
They're singin' out for rain.
"They're singin' out for rain," he said,
"And all the tanks are dry."
The congregation scratched its head,
And gazed around the sky.
"There won't be grass, in any case,
Enough to feed an ass;
There's not a blade on Casey's place
As I came down to Mass."
"If rain don't come this month," said Dan,
And cleared his throat to speak--
"We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan,
"If rain don't come this week."
A heavy silence seemed to steal
On all at this remark;
And each man squatted on his heel,
And chewed a piece of bark.
"We want a inch of rain, we do,"
O'Neil observed at last;
But Croke "maintained" we wanted two
To put the danger past.
"If we don't get three inches, man,
Or four to break this drought,
We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan,
"Before the year is out."
In God's good time down came the rain;
And all the afternoon
On iron roof and window-pane
It drummed a homely tune.
And through the night it pattered still,
And lightsome, gladsome elves
On dripping spout and window-sill
Kept talking to themselves.
It pelted, pelted all day long,
A-singing at its work,
Till every heart took up the song
Way out to Back-o'Bourke.
And every creek a banker ran,
And dams filled overtop;
"We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan,
"If this rain doesn't stop."
And stop it did, in God's good time;
And spring came in to fold
A mantle o'er the hills sublime
Of green and pink and gold.
And days went by on dancing feet,
With harvest-hopes immense,
And laughing eyes beheld the wheat
Nid-nodding o'er the fence.
And, oh, the smiles on every face,
As happy lad and lass
Through grass knee-deep on Casey's place
Went riding down to Mass.
While round the church in clothes genteel
Discoursed the men of mark,
And each man squatted on his heel,
And chewed his piece of bark.
"There'll be bush-fires for sure, me man,
There will, without a doubt;
We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan,
"Before the year is out."
John O'Brien

I think John O"Brien was meaning ruined.. not the urban definition of rooned, I wouldn't imagine back in those days, when it was written.
Glad you like it Breezey (:

I'm sure he meant ruined (I can hear the Aussie accent in it), and I don't even know the urban definition. Do I wanna know?

lol.. I can hear the Aussie accent too when I read it.. (:
No.. probably best not to know the urban meaning. It would taint a great poem.
