Matty Hogan // THE DENIED RIGHT

All people have the right to food,

But Starvation denies that right.

He must be ended,

Like the cruel beast he is.

 

Many people are fortunate.

They have enough to eat,

They have money, a family…

Some are oppressed by starvation.

He gives the feeling of being alone,

Ignored.

As hopeless as a flipped turtle,

As a friend in need.

 

He brings pain and fear,

He blocks out joy.

As a stormy day in one’s spirit;

Feeling cold, alone, ignored.

 

All people have the right to food,

But Starvation denies that right.

He must be destroyed,

Like the demon he is.
