H is for Hunger

Squalor and Hunger are not twin evils

Poverty and filth do not cohabitate

Your domicile is not always your home

The government controls your life

But does not care for your body

Hunger breeds resistance

Hunger makes a pacifist murder

Hunger makes a mother steal

 

Random words do not flow

As easily when you are hungry

The starving artist is not romantic

The desperate writer eating stale bread

Poverty is not romantic!

It is oppression and starvation

It is want while others waste

It is a longing deep in the soul for the basic necessities

That you will never receive

Hunger is more than just a lack of food

We need to feed Americans first and then worry about the rest of the world. Always fill your bag in May for the Post Office’s feed the hungry program.
