The last drop
Bought from your wine shop
Can’t save my crop
I shall attempt to cry
Fast and bold eye drop
Without a funded irrigation
I shall sell again
My harvest without a red bell
From my farm
Beneath the well
Watching those eyes burn
Even when few clouds assist
And few turn soft pillows
Making it my debt
I am the last crop
Extreme labour is flop
Eating excreta manufactures
The bonus drop
For the heartless and the press
None left to resist
World media towards the right
Where its fresh excreta
Dawn repeatedly files
The oppressed draught
Of highlighted governance
And well-planned agriculture
With bone-beneath-root manures.
