We've been battered for millenia,
maladaptive traits to live
while the things that made us human
from the world have been hid.

In the gardens, on the beaches
and from bluffs, we build a shrine
to the truths that have been buried
in the darkest parts of time. 

Break free from it; rise up to it;
it needn't be this way!
Go on living, digging deeper
to the roots you've thrown away.

Suck the marrow; eat the liver;
bask in fat and bounty's yield.
May home be art with nature's soul
and health be in our fields.
