The futures of Silver Queen Sweet Corn plummeted again today on the news that no more seed corn would be added to the soil any time soon.
The environment for sweet corn continued to head into the red zone and that pattern looked like it will hold for some time.
With a laissez faire attitude, lax over sight and no regulations being enforced in the Silver Queen Sweet Corn market, the imagined ears of sweet corn began to vanish in the night.
The arrival of each passing day, revealed more of the imagined sweet corn had evaporated from the sweet corn market faster than the morning dew on a warm sunny day.
Panicked sweet corn eaters stripped the stalks of some of the plumpest ears, despite concerns that the assets of the ears had not reached full maturity. Amid the rotten fruits gathering at the base of the sweet corn market, corn eaters were happy to get what they could while it was still possible.
The always rosy prognostications of smooth sailing in clear skies bathed in a golden glow of safety
began to give way to the reality of ominous storm clouds on the horizon as far as the eye could see. Future predictions look decidedly chilly.
The real future for Silver Queen Sweet Corn is coming closer into view.
The end of an era as we know it may be happening again before our very eyes.
