How Long Can Men Thrive ~

A field of soybeans as far as the eye can see...


How long can men thrive between walls of brick,
walking on asphalt pavements,
breathing the fumes of coal and of oil,
growing, working, dying,
with hardly a thought of wind, and sky, and fields of grain,
seeing only machine-made beauty,
the mineral-like quality of life?

~Charles A. Lindbergh

I think sadly we're about to find out. I don't think any of us will like the answer, either.

Alas, Duffy, I tend to agree with you.
