Poem: Hunger

 

Hunger is not a game

Hunger is a human despair

Hunger is a moment of losing content

Hunger is a beast from our animal gene

Hunger …

 

Hunger is not a game

Games do not end in skeletons of

Children crying in

Filthy camps on the

Edge of existence and the

Edge of a railway line

Hunger …

 

Hunger is a human despair

Fears feed on the weakness of

Mind, on the

Absence of Mind in the

Jungle of greed and envy, it

Feeds on the ugly face of

Humanity, and leaves behind

Hunger …

 

Hunger …

Hunger is not a game

Hunger …

Hunger remains

Hunger …

Tables filled with food

Hunger …

Bins filled with food

Hunger …

Wasted food

Hunger …

 

Hunger is not a game

Hunger is a human despair

Feeds on the ugly face of

Humanity, greed and envy

Leaves behind in the waste of

Existence, the children the

Next

Generations that

Hunger.
