Starving Nations - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Blessed with abundance of land
I simply cannot undertstand
the uniform sufferring
calling on global humanity

Struggling nations
without a decent education
Multipying populations
being forced out of their cities
by war and invasion

Starving Children
Parents cradling them in distress
The land is barren
from wars and famine
which are countless
There is simply no easy way
out of this mess

Starving nations
Third world nations
Years of little or no rain
have put a huge strain
on the government

Relief agencies
leading the way for a good cause
Yet there are those of us
who can afford to give a toss
