Fieldwork ’95

Let me tell you how bad it is:

Last week
my neighbor was out in the field
trying to get some kind of crop in.
He got stuck.
Another neighbor
helped pull his rig out of the mud.

None of us
has had a crop to speak of
since ’92.

He’s a good man…
farmed ’round here for almost thirty years now.

After he got his tractor out
he went home and shot himself.

He was a good man.
