Hunger. By Sonam Bhutia. - Poem by sonam bhutia

Helpless mother
feeds her hungry child,
with fragments of lullaby.
Fallible orphan consoles it…
by the loaves of illusion.
Pauper pacifies it,
by only alternative…water.
Poor family takes it…a fate.
Wealthy man deems it…
a sweet flavour.
An insane person bears it…
a compulsion.
Politician grasps it…
as an opportunity.
Labourer meets it…
a way of living life.
