Dr. Seuss on G-FEED

Apologies for the lack of posting. Should pick up more soon. Meanwhile, my kids are celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday at school today. So on my way to work, without time for a real post, I thought about what good old Theodore might post on our site. Here's my attempt:

Haze and heat for maize and wheat
Are not helpful at all.
They wilt and sweat and then worse yet
Yield trends may start to stall.
What happens next is hard to guess,
but may be change in diets.
For us that’s fine, but if poor can’t dine,
it may mean death and riots.
But maybe things won’t be so bad and we can find salvation,
With new genes or crops or lots more drops of pricey irrigation.
But how to know? And what to do?
Ask many worried leaders
What’s in the cards? Well, ask the blowhards
who call themselves G-FEEDers
The data, they say, is where to look, 
if we are really wise
To know what works or what will just
keep prices on the rise
That’s great you say, but since last May, 
they have only five posts
But that’s the speed you get, indeed, 
when working on left coasts
So don’t forget to check the site and come again real soon
What’s soon, you ask? Well, that depends. For Schlenker could be June.
Until then, they work and work, 
taking breaks only for soup
Except the one that they call Burke, 
who blogs on wars and poop
But in the spring, our tweets will ring, 
and we’ll have no excuses
With no wisdom to spread, for now instead, 
I leave you with Dr. Seuss’s:
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left.
