The Organic Shillbillies

To the tune of the Ballad of Jed Clampett

For all the American farmers working through their  Fourth of July Weekend and having to continually endure the closed-minded prejudice of the organic food industry lobby.

The Organic Shillbillies with text

Come listen to a story ’bout a man named Rus-ked
The wily poor organie couldn’t keep the planet fed,
Then one day he was playing F.O’A,
And up from the screen came a bountiful play.

Monsanto, that is … more fundin’ … activism …

Well the first thing you know Dr Chuck’s a millionaire,
Science-folk said: ‘Chuck, data doesn’t care!’
Hirshberg said:’Washtonie’s the place you oughtta be.’
So, he loaded up a paper and took it down to DC.

Shills, that is … on twitter … Food Babes …

Well now it’s time to say goodbye to Zen and all her kin.
Nobel laureates underlined their anti-science sin
But they’re all fighting back, claimin’ it’s the industry
And keepin’ up a campaign with their crazed insanity!

Vitamin A, that is … No Golden Rice … Take the facts off.

Y’all donate now, y’hear?
