They say all you need is a garden and a library.
How cool would it be to start an urban garden at the library?
Did you know you could get hierloom seeds from the library?
THINK BEYOND THE BOOKS,
ask a librarian if they have a seed library.
If you’re swamped by food deserts,
All you need is a library.
I want you to tap into the wellspring of resources made available to you through the the library.
My poems are not poems,
This is me planting the seed:
GO TO THE LIBRARY!
EXPLORE THE STACKS,
Peruse the 630’s,
Learn about container gardening at the library.
They say money doesn’t grow on trees,
Well food deserts don’t bear no fruit.
Who taught us to devalue nutritional value?
It’s like printing your own money when you grow your own vegetables and fruits.
All you need is a garden and a library,
Leave no room for reproof.
There’s a huge difference between wholefoods and Whole Foods,
The library is a place to grow
And your mind in bloom is like a tomato garden on a roof.
May you come to maturity at the library;
The secrets of societies are hidden in plain sight at the library.
But don’t mind me,
I just pen poetics, prophecies, and philosophies at the library.
