Starvation

Rating: 5.0

It is sad to see a child's eyes in a morning light
crying out but no bread in sight
Possessions are few and time is brief
The parents-beyond reason wait with grief
Healthy & free on the other side of the world
a human race sees the flag unfurled
Not fair lack of justice - I've heard people
say detached uninvolved-until it comes their way
Brutal hunger is cruel and thoughtless its true.
It exists here in the red white and blue
Don't wait-reach out-do your part
It could have been you right from the start.
