Straight out in the sand

Well assorted oasis market on the edge of the Sahara.

When you as I was born in the countryside (many years ago)
you could laugh at metropolitan children’s lack of knowledge of where food come from
milk from cows, eggs from the hens, pork chops from pigs, etc etc etc.

Then suddenly one is left with the question
in a market in an oasis town a stone’s throw from the Sahara and surrounded by sand
where all these beautiful fruits and vegetables, come from.

This is not the gateway to a productive agriculture
but the road straight out into Sahara.
