about that gnat in your soup…

about that gnat in your soup

i want
to
sincerely
express
my appreciation
for
your honest
statement
of
your deepest trepidations
but
as a mild point
of
perspective
i liked
to
call to your attention
to
this year’s
169 thousand deaths
of
mothers
that occurred
during
childbirth
oh
and
the
2 million hectares
of
forest
that has been lost
to erosion
erosion
produced
by
man’s negligence
of
the planet
oh
and one last thing
to mention
the
23 thousand people
who died
of
hunger

today
but
your serious
concerns
about
the availability
of
live lobsters
in
your local
market
will
of
course
be
given
appropriate
consideration

please call back…

the senator
was unable
to attend
the meeting
on world hunger
since
a lobbyist called
regarding
the rising price
of
dark chocolate

let them eat cake….

 

the eyes
of hunger
have become
swords of desperation
wielded at your entitlement
no longer willing
to wait for you
to toss a coin
into hope’s tin cup
for a future
where their children
are no longer nursed
on empty breasts
now they demand
that you come out
of your palace
place your greed
upon the guillotine
of social justice
and prepare
to meet
the steely blade
of
cold
reality
