In Mind, In Pen - Poem by David Darbyshire

When I saw the film 'Laurence of Arabia'
I wrote a poem about the deserts.
If I saw a program over cooking,
I would write a poem about Desserts.

If I watched a program about Fishing
I'd probably write a poem over Lakes
when I saw the film ' Boa'
I wrote a poem about snakes

If I saw a T.V. show about farms
would I write a poem about a Hen?
And if I would see a documentary over 'Famine'
What would I write about then?

    Regarding the last two lines - Swollen childrens' bellies? Misery? Sad mothers? Poverty? Dirty drinking water? Corrupt governments?
    This is a thought-provoking poem, Dave.
