Back Then

Once upon a time American food producers, farmers, etc,
enlisted college students and nomadic Americans to get
the harvest in; but that was then. Nowadays, college students
say “fuck that noise, I’m off to Cannes”, and nomadic
Americans have all but disappeared, however nomadic people
still exist.
Today and for quite some time the bulk of nomadic people
have been of Mexican heritage and many have settled here and
have become American citizens and what’s wrong with that?
This has benefited America greatly. Take for instance a basic
necessity such as food. Before it reaches your table it must
be harvested, butchered, processed, and these people I speak
of are heavily involved in that endeavor and yes, I speak
to you in Arkansas.
And yet we put them down, we villify them, and in doing so we villify ourselves.
