This Land is in My Blood

Gobblers & Masticadores

by Dawn Pisturino

This land is in my blood
And my blood is in this land.
I will pick up arms and fight for it.
I will fight for what is mine.
My blood, sweat, and tears
Fertilized this soil.
The crops grow strong and rich
With life-giving nectar.
They nourish my family
And sustain my community.
My country is vast and proud,
Strengthened by the wealth 
Of nutrient-rich soil.
The land is in my blood.
The blood is in my land.
And I will die for it.
