While Eating Cookie Crisp Cereal

The corn was grown in a plot of land somewhere
To the exclusion of all other life that might have been there
fertilized with imported nitrates, modified genetically
sprayed with synthesized toxins to keep other life away
Harvested, processed in a factory with great energy
petroleum, trees, coal, minerals, pigment consumed
All so that one could have
a box of Cookie Crisp
