Hunger Poem by Dr Dillip K Swain


Rating: 4.8

An orphan child
sitting on a platform
ignoring the sound of fast crossing trains
and trains halting late at the station

The maddened crowds
in search of their berths and seats,
rushing into compartments
and he is eating the thrown biscuits
and hearing the terrible noise of his belly

The inward sound of hunger
echoing louder and louder
like that of thunder

This is a very touching poem. The number one pestilent disease sending millions of kids to death is hunger. But the world fail to see it.
