But growing food? Scant funding hope.
It's policy from Pols myope,
When shops run out, how do we cope?
In NL where the weather tries
And ferry service oft awry
And washouts due to rain are high
On long-haul transport can't rely.
You’d think it only common sense
That food-secure takes precedence;
Sufficient fare to feed ourselves
Stockpiled close to food-store shelves.
First in line in spending tare
Are hospitals, and long-term care;
Facilities to fix folks' health -
If no food we’ll starve to death!
