Up in the sky I am four
Once revered in times of war
With bloodshed I guard my farm
Planting beans to try and charm
I closed the door of Opportunity
Creating bars for the community

What am I?

I think the answer is

Mars

Up in the sky I am four

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun

Once revered in times of war

Mars was also the Roman God of war

With bloodshed I guard my farm

Most of the festivals for the God, Mars, were held in March, the month named for him, and in October, which began the season for military campaigning and ended the season for farming.

Planting beans to try and charm

Cocoa beans go into making the chocolate Mars bar

I closed the door of Opportunity

The Opportunity Rover

Creating bars for the community

Opportunity laid the groundwork for further research and a possible manned mission, the next bars for the human race to clear.

Also could be referencing a Mars bar.

  • $\begingroup$ @JackyWu Is it a reference related to the previous line? $\endgroup$ – hexomino May 3 at 9:24
  • $\begingroup$ No, it's related to the last line, I do admit the order of these lines was not perfect but I wanted it to rhyme with the the same syllable count. $\endgroup$ – Jacky Wu May 3 at 9:33

It may be

Nuclear Bomb ( The radioactive elements - Uranium, Neptunium, Plutonium and Cerium).

Reasons

These refer to 4 celestial bodies' names(URANUS, NEPTUNE, PLUTO, CERES), WWII used radioactive bombs, resulted in bloodshed and created bars for the community

  • $\begingroup$ Your logic is close, but you have to take all the lines into consideration. $\endgroup$ – Jacky Wu May 3 at 5:49
