Hunger


A child dies
a mother cries
but the world justs laugh
oh take a look
there dies another calf

The rich got too much too waste
and the poor got nothing
just ask yourself today can we do anything?

The milk crumbles
and is thrown away
the stomach grumbles
but one cant throw it away

Hunger makes one mad
I know its sad
but just reading this everyday
I am sure its not the way

One says poor behave mad
they feel so very sad
just answer this
if hunger cannot be erradicated;
how can they stay sophesticated?

Two more so tenderly complete:
