it grew
tall,

upright and
straight,

aiming
for the sun,

a single
stalk,

till cut down
by a sickle,

lying horizontal
on the muddy ground,

crushed between
ruthless metal,

till all essence
extracted,

the sweetnes would
have dried,

uselessly wasted,

now a pinch
of its dried life,

is the sugar
of yours.
