Unencumbered






Unencumbered

We don't have to choose between eating
living and growing unencumbered 
between non-Hodgkins lymphoma and chemicals 
killers are well known we thought
some chemicals are okay
helping food plants grow unencumbered by weeds
we see they nurture cancer 
now Monsanto has to pay $80 million
not warn us 
they did create glyphosate herbicides 
unencumbered by truth and concern for public safety
