There Is Anarchy in the Summerfields

There is anarchy in the summerfields

The soybeans 
are Socialist Democract 
with each 
growing to a uniform height 
never wanting 
greater height than neighbor plants

The corn 
a Monarchy, 
tall, proud but thin, fragile;
standing on dirt

Wheat is Communist 
using the manifesto wind 
as an excuse 
to wave in unison, 
but only managing an occasional ripple   

Green Beans 
are Democracy 
thinking they can grow 
as long as they want, but 
just getting tangled 
in each other's vines
