“(Weather)-2 (Farmers)-1”

One can wager on your favorite team
and there might be times you win
yet if you bet on the weather
your chances are real thin.
 
Yes the weather changes often
leaving many farmers sick
it matters not the crop abundance
if the fields are too slick.
 
It’s a challenge for most of them
needing rain when it is dry
then when it’s time to harvest
it’s too wet to even try.
 
One must give the farmers credit
for all the obstacles they face
each and every year they enter
but only a few will win the race.
 
Farmers never know the ending
though all may start quite well
yes from day to day and year to year
the weather casts its spell.
 
Now the farmer is the backbone
of the good ole U.S.A.
yet the government and the weather
determines what he does every day.
