The Other Side

Grasslands and ranches line the road,

Speckled with aging frond covered palms.

Ramshackled old houses long abandoned

Leaning from storms that swept the land.

Tomatoes and strawberries and sugarcane,

Active farms and ranches keep us fed

A different world exists between our coasts.

Florida is more than fun and beaches.
