Day 7 Bugs and chocolate

 Happy National Chocolate Day (Latest post)


Food of the gods
theobroma cacao
In the easterly direction you were traded,
slaves to our addiction; grow full-bellied
from a trunk. An all-season pod
felled by a long-poled knife at a stroke...

Breakfast (C-19) chats on Twitter again, and a video from Emily Nelson at Leeds Museums and Galleries about cocoa production. Which led me to explore more here and there to start writing a poem that is very much based on science facts.
