For Want Of A Loaf Of Bread - Poem by Sidi J. Mahtrow

For want of a loaf of bread,
A child was lost.
For want of a child,
A family was lost.
For want of a family,
A community was lost.
For want of a community,
A Town was lost.
For want of a town,
A state was lost.
For want of a state,
A nation was lost.
For want of a nation
A society was lost.

All for the want of a loaf of bread.

Making fuel from grain has unintended consequences.
