MISSIVES BEHIND THE CURTAIN____Empty Plates____by Sultan Babatunde LAWAL

____Empty Plates____

You have more than enough,
Some don’t even have what to eat,
We can afford to waste food,
Waste is a saving grace to others.

Feed a soul today,
The hunger in the universe is underrated,
Probably the media reportage isn’t fair,
Hunger is the most dangerous ailment of the poor.

Hopes are not to be eaten,
Dreams are not to be served,
Passion might not put food on the table,
But through persistency you’ll be self sufficient eventually.

National discuss is meaningless to some,
What is the essence of governance when constituents are in penury,
All governmental project is of no use if hunger is our best friend,
The only language understood is that of food.

Maybe subsidy on food is the way to go,
Or going back to land for sustainability,
Hunger has killed more souls than any ailment,
May God save the poor.
