I tried to make this bigger, so it would be more readable, but then parts of the image got hidden by what I have on my sidebar (clock, etc.) SO…here is the poem:
Murder by genetic manipulation.
One poison’s as good as another.
No labels needed for the population.
Seeds to feed the corporate greed, brother.
Any independent competition: eliminated.
No naturally-grown harvests allowed.
Test-tube food, specially (re)created.
Opt out, if you can, of the guinea-pig crowd.

The info at the bottom regarding numbers involve the PLU stickers you find on produce, etc. at the grocery stores. Here is that info:
* 5 Digit Code starting with 9 – Organic. Grown Naturally, no chemicals.
* 4 Digit Code starting with 4 – Conventional. Grown with chemicals and pesticides.
* 5 Digit Code starting with 8 – GMO. Grown unnaturally, genetically modified.
This is a very important issue to me, and it should be to you, too. Why? Because you have a RIGHT to know what you’re eating. Maybe you don’t care what you eat, in which case, carry on, this doesn’t pertain to you. But if you DO care, you should also know that the U.S.A is one of the last countries in the world to NOT label GMO foods DESPITE the fact that 91% of Americans want them labeled. Why is this? Could it be that big GMO companies like Monsanto spend MILLIONS of dollars to make sure their Franken-food ISN’T LABELED?
Hmmmm…the more you research it, the more horrified you’ll get. But don’t take my word for it. Go check it out. Do a Google search on Monsanto, GMOs, problems, safety concerns, labeling GMOs in America…become informed. Do an image search on GMO side effects. And the next time you go to the grocery – take a look at the PLUs (if you can find them – the GMO companies have gotten wind of people looking at the PLUs now, and aren’t required to label them in this country).
