The Division Bell

The divisive notion of “us” and “them” causes wars.

[This photo is of a Lady Bug feeding upon berries of Pokeweed… (also called Poke Salad, Poke Sallet, or Polk Weed). All parts of Pokeweed are poisonous, but (especially in the South) a lot of people boil and reboil the plant many times to leach out the toxins; then it is eaten. The berries are the least toxic part of the plant, though children have gotten sick from eating them.  Pokeweed is being looked into as a possible cure for cancer and other diseases.   Research has shown that pokeweed contains a compound that appears to enhance the immune system and has some anti-cancer effects in animals.  Elvis Presley sang a song about this plant… “Polk Salad Annie” (‘gators got your granny).]
