The Battle Ground Of Food


The Battle Ground Of Food
The poor are not poor because it is their fate.
The poor are poor because their aggressors, even in
their lands fight wars against them with economics.

The hungry are hungry because those that are against
them wish to create genocide by hunger.
If one looks at history, there has never been a country
nor a civilization in which the entitled knew even one day
of hunger.
But, look at the starving masses of their enemies or those
who do not boast their traits, religion, color, politics or class.
To starve children, is to starve an opposing future.
There are those in this world who know, practice and
understand mercy and those who do not...They practice
control.
We can not change the cruel nature of retaliatory 'man'.
We can only create strategies to exhibit the caring aspect
of man around it.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
