the carrot famine continues
Demand has lead to a violent black market –
people have been selling counterfeit carrots –
orange painted rocks –
camouflaged parsnips –
dyed – unscrupulous
racketeers have broken fingers,
blood has been spilled.
There appears to be no end in sight to this hunger.
Mental institutions are seeing an increase in patients
affected by vivid
dreams of carrots.
Maybe there is a virus afoot
an unconscious joining of imagery?
But I am no man of science
so I can offer no facts, just
but what I can tell you is
Scared for myself and the future.
We need carrots.
How else can we see in the dark?
