Funny Farm

A fearsome foray into my fiber follies. I talk about weaving, knitting, spinning and dyeing. Some chatter about the sheep, goats, pigs and chickens.

Revenuers
by Robin Stansbury

Mama said the government was bad.
The damned revenuers done took all that Papa had,
And the cotton wouldn't grow,
But the corn did, dontcha know.
The cotton gins once made this place boom,
But the government paid the farmers for their doom,
And now the cotton doesn't grow,
And neither does the corn, dontcha know.
Then, came the gas wells, again the boom was on,
But the gas well exploded tonight, and now the gas is gone,
And the farmer is paid not to plant crops,
While people starve until the last man drops.
Mama said the government was bad.
The damned revenuers done took all that Papa had.

Okay, where do you live? We have to come and visit and sample the wares! (Also, thanks so much for the recipe. It was a hit on Saturday!)
