The Other Half


The Other Half

Give this thought, this night you eat

Your roast beef or your turkey treats

Half the World is staving, now

Not living off the fatted cow

These starving millions

Of half of the World
Care not the luxuries
Of diamonds or pearls
A bowl of rice is all they want
From this great big worlds cooking pot

New born babies from the mothers womb
Add to the millions in the hunger queue
No milk to feed them from the mothers breast
For she herself, is a skeleton, no less

A ripe old age is not for them
When starvation kills, nine out of ten
We stack our food in mountainous stocks
Sometimes left to stink and rot
Can’t mankind forget his greed
And GIVE this food to those in need

Poems of Peter
