Sharecroppers life

NaPoWriMo Day 15: write a poem that incorporates the idea of doubles. You could incorporate doubling into the form, for example, by writing a poem in couplets. Or you could make doubles the theme of the poem, by writing, for example, about mirrors or twins, or simply things that come in pairs. Or you could double your doublings by incorporating things-that-come-in-twos into both your subject and form.

Sharecroppers
Caretakers

Worked the land
To survive

Spring planting
Cotton seeds

Vegetable gardens
To survive

Summer field work
Chop weeds

Around the cotton
To survive

Pick vegetables
Can vegetables

Fall harvest
To survive

Pick the cotton
Share the money

Pack up and move
To survive
