The Face of Allergies

POETIC RANT  | The fight for allergy-free foods

My daughter – Matilda – was eating eggs fine until the age of 3.5 when she started having mild reactions – which then developed into anaphylactic reactions

This is the face 

Of what so-called food can do

A mild reaction

Breath still in action

Allergens the trigger

No warning, no sticker

Producers fucking with food 

Untold processes skewed

Numbers with no names

GMO games

What is our food eating?

Feed grown in soils or sands

Laced with chemical strands

Grass or glyphosate 

Is it too late? 

Rage rises in me

Driving me to ask more

Who is this food safe for? 

Resistance still there

Do I run and hide 

Or chase the rollercoaster ride

Grow our own

Together or alone

What will become

For the food in our tums?

Rollercoaster ride initiated. 

One conversation at a time.
