Blut und Boden

Cross sectionMy soil is filled with organisms
named in Greek and Latin.
My blood contains chemicals
invented in America.

I feel moved when I see the statue of Hierta,
but only smile when I see the parade of kings.

I feel proud when I see the banknote,
not over where it was printed
but because I am the same species
as the gardener monkey.
