Gardens require manure they said
and bought in loads of dung.
They gloved their hands to shovel it
with joy that's still unsung.
We watched the plants grow strong and stout
with fruits to brag about—
None weakened by neglect or drought
tall corn to little sprout.
Just turning soil is not enough
though plants resilient be—
it’s how soil grows and changes
that makes its people free.
