Commerce is a double edged sword
Greed and profit our downfall,
My father and his father worked here,
We lived and loved our jobs,
Worked hard and made our lives here.
We gave our all and loved this land,
Growing food and sharing.
Sadly the friend who employed us
Passed away and left this world,
The land has been sold.
Big business has swallowed our jobs,
Digested the land and spat us out
Commercialization is a heartless beast
Our future is not commercial.
Where do we go from here?
The children we love are our future,
Learning new horizons the key.
A pathway forced us to re-locate
Take them out of this rut to learn.
To beat the beast that stole our lives.
Learn to become commercial.
