    Write down on the top of the first page:
    I do not hate poeple
    Nor do I encroach
    But if I become hungry
    The usurper's flesh will be my food
    Beware..
    Beware..
    Of my hunger
    And my anger!

    Great poem of want, deprivation and a history of persecution. But, don't ever cross the limit.
    Circumstances make you a rebel. Thanks.

    great poem;
    verily the true utterance
    this world will not listen;
    because the riders of this world are deaf since birth!

    A powerful write encompassing all who's plight is being now being forgotten and discarded, even though they have been given an ID.

    Why can't you find a poet to read this poem? Stephen Dawkins could have read this more expressively! The reader even pronounced the typo poeple as it was misspelt! Ed Reid New Zealand
