Food (A Hungry Man Is An Angry Man) - Poem by U Win Kyi

The high officials from different countries held a meeting,
to discuss the matter about food short-coming.
They said, 'A hungry man is an angry man.'
which causes the poor men's heart...so saddened..
The poor men say poverty is not their fault.
Food prices are manipulated by the hoarding greedy boss,
and goverment's failure to have the law enforced,
and its incompetency to do the perfect job.
Yes, they are very mad and angry,
not because they are hungry but about goverment's bad policy.
Emission of CO2 from rich countries make the global warming,
with its effect....melting of Artic ice, severe drought in the coming,
with temperature slowly and steadily rises and burns,
to the crops it causes the great harm,
resulting in a poor harvest,
well short of what they expect.
Then they march on the streets to shout and protest,
and the policemen throw the tear gas to disperse.
The high official's family are well-fed,
while the hungry poor children barely survive on food scrap.
The powerful officials turn the arable land into golf course,
pocketing the profits for their own cause.
They don't care about the poor people whether they live or die,
so the hungry men getting angry is justified.

The hoarders and the black marketeers wine and dine the food of the best.
If they are put under the arrest,
or if their profit becomes less,
they would be angry and mad.

But there are millions of hungry men,
who would rather like to die,
than to loot or tell a lie,
let alone getting angry or mad,
as the Holy Bible said,
man cannot live only on bread,
but must live on His teaching until death,
so that he would go to a place,
in heaven, as his soul is saved.
