“Ode to Monsanto” – A Secret Love Affair



GMO Insiders, let Cheerios and Monsanto know what you think of their relationship.  Pick your favorite line, or come up with your own rhyme and post them to Cheerios and Monsanto’s Facebook pages.

Let them know what you think of their secret love affair.


Dearest Monsanto,


Our love for you must be shared on this day,

For our love’s as invasive as the pesticides you help spray,


All of us here at Cheerios are cheering,

For your toxic technology and engineering profiteering,


It’s with pride we use the ingredients that you provide,

But unlike them, our love is unmodified,


Beloved, Monsanto!


Our love for you is disease resistant,

Just like your seeds, but actually persistent,


You never falter to alter your seeds,

And for you we can overlook all those superweeds,


Some may question the safety of foods you produce,

But ignorance is bliss, and this is our favorite excuse,


Darling, Monsanto!


Our love for you has all sorts of flavors added,

And we love the way you keep our wallets padded,


You are the master of the intellectual property right,

Sabotaging farmers and scientists with the studies they cite,


The rumors of tumors on the GMO consumer?

We trust you, Monsanto! These people have no sense of humor,


Yes, Monsanto!


The way you stand up to the manic panic,

Of those informed enough to seek organic,


Your genetic extractions and shady transactions,

Dismissing distractions and lawsuit class actions,


All the thrills you give General Mills,

Can best be counted in dollar bills,


The way your fields yield,

The way your lawyers shield,


You do not just control the seeds and weeds,

You also have a monopoly on our heart,


With love,



GMO Insiders, help us make sure this is more than just some silly rhyming!  Please post your favorite line, or better yet, your own rhymes to Cheerios and Monsanto’s Facebook pages. Let them know what you think of their secret love affair.

Also, be sure to show your GMO Inside support this Valentine’s – Break up With GMOs and spread the word about the petition calling out General Mills.
