Letter: Poisoning is the modern way

With spring, the musty scents of wet earth budding forth, fills the air. The grasses tussle with tiny violets and liverworts while mosses green the dirt.
Not long now until the plantains peek out between succulent dandelion greens. Only two solutions are offered to quell this abundance. Plow it under with chickens, or dozers, or poison the land. Nothing too strong, a weed and feed will do. Then it can be tromped onto our carpets and poison our pets and children too. As a plus bonus, the bees die and poison the birds foraging for bugs. Poisoning is the modern way. Fast, easy, and not too expensive. Poisoning the land poisons the water too, giving poison the best bang for the buck, I guess.
