We Just Don't Know, about GMO

We Just Don’t Know

We Just Don’t Know

If you feed the world genetically modified foods

The kids may grow up to have genetically modified broods

They’ll be running around all over the street

Scratchin’ up the ground with their little chicken feet

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

Already we’ve got fish that are not what they seem

They are made with chicken leukemia virus genes

The first time they tried to modify pink salmon

It came out green

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

If you are a vegetarian you may wish

To know that’s a vegetable in your dish

But a plant is not necessarily a plant

It may contain fish

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

At least 80% of processed foods contain some genetically modified goods

Even if you are in the mood

To read the labels on your food

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

The only way to shop is by chance

Fill up your cart and start to dance

Now toss out 80% and hope for the best

Perhaps what is left would pass the safe food test

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

Already we’ve got beets that are not

What they seem

They are made with all kinds of mutated genes When they make sugar out of the beets

It will only read “dextrose’

On the package

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

The FDA has a stacked deck

Of corporate executives who say “what the heck, we will go back to Monsanto once we have made the rules,

to assure our profits from poisonous chemicals”

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

Monsanto has stolen the natural seeds

Then put patents on them so they can make their own breeds

Reliant on their pesticides and herbicides which are killing the planet and taking lives

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

The only way to make sure your food is safe is to grow it yourself

from seeds that you’ve saved

But if Monsanto is in the mood to be picky

They can hit you with a lawsuit

that can get pretty tricky

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

Its corn and beans you most have to watch out for

But they are hidden in dextrose, lecithin, and fillers

Anyone with food allergies will eat what was once safe and start to wheeze

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

Already we’ve got 90% of soy that is not what it seems

It is made to resist herbicides in its genes

That means they can put more poisons on the earth

and on the beans

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

Monsanto wants to rule the world with their poisonous chemicals and genetically modified foods

What they have planned is nothing short of genocide

It will be a miracle if indigenous cultures survive

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

They make everyone dependent on genetically modified seeds

Which are quickly replacing all the natural breeds

And please, someone tell me,

Just why is itthat they are experimenting with corn that contains a contraceptive?

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

Once they have perfected their cloning operations

They will do away with womyn for reproduction

All of this adds up to one thing

Men taking control over Nature’s Creation

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

If you feed the kids genetically modified foods

will they all grow up to have genetically modified broods?

Or will they just happen to be sterile so

Monsanto can replace them

with

Genetically modified People?

We just don’t know

We just don’t know

We just don’t know….

    Hi OakTrillium. Thanks for sharing your well written, but positively scary poem about GMO. I worry about the whole GMO thing, but I'm glad to see that quite a few countries are banning Monsanto products, so hopefully this trend has already been reduce somewhat to the point where it will be reversed in the near future.

    I am so scared of GMO food. I pray that the whole wide world will ban it. Health is better than wealth. The health of everyone should be the utmost concern of out leaders.

    Thanks for sharing.
