this . . . . . . . heaven knows we've been going on about it for long enough

 . . . . . farmer, farmer put away the DDT now, give me spots on my apples 

but leave me the birds and the bees

what have they done to the earth?
what have they done to our fair sister?
ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her
stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn
and tied her with fences and dragged her down

Jim Morrison - The Doors 'When The Music's Over'

oh, it was just a hippie sentiment huh? and now the bees are dying and we have GMO doctored food stuffs, fruit and vegetables causing all kinds of disastrous mayhem . . . . fortunately some folk are still spreading the word now and still . . . . . . . . . 

For Rachel Carson

Rachel Carson (May 27, 1907–April 14, 1964)
