Wherever it whirls, the world must follow the farmer. Thus despite hardships, farming is the best. Farmers are the linchpin of the world For they support all others who cannot till. They only live who live by the plough. The rest must stoop and trail behind. The reign of many kingdoms comes under The reign of those with abundant grain. Those who eat what their hands produce Neither beg nor refuse a beggar. Even the desire-free hermits will lose their state If ploughmen fold their hands. If ploughed and dried to quarter its size, The soil yields plenty sans even handful manure. Manuring is crucial than ploughing. After weeding, Protection is crucial than watering. If the landlord neglects his field visits, The angry land will sulk like a neglected wife. Mother Earth laughs at the sight of those Who remain idle pleading poverty.
