about

Rob Reid Chicago, Illinois

A voracious listener of traditional music from around the world, Rob draws from genres such as hi-life, griot, bossa nova, and classic jazz to create a backdrop for songs about real and fictional characters. Unlike Rob, these colorful characters get involved in endeavors such as riding public transit in West Africa, surviving lightning strikes, and holding up banks. ... more

Track Name: The Principles of Crop Rotation
If you’re wondering
why your crops won’t grow
your fields overrun
by bugs and weeds

If you’re struggling
and times are slow
Your crops infested
by disease

There’s no need to
let soil lay fallow
Alternate roots
first deep then shallow

all you have to do is change
You can never keep the same

If you want to
fend off disease
You can’t sit still
Be a moving target

If you want to
keep away weeds
You can’t just till
Be rotation farming

There’s no need to
Be so callow
Crop rotation
Should be so hallowed

all you have to do is change
You can never keep the same

Wheat, barley
turnips then clover
With each year
you turn it over

Rice to cotton
soybeans to maize
All you have to
do is change

There’s no need to
let soil lay fallow
Alternate roots
first deep then shallow

all you have to do is change
You can never keep the same
