NO FOOD NO GLORY!

Bombing here
Bombing there
Bombing everywhere!

I want to eat
My tummy calls for it
But how could I get
Military do blockage
  
Basic need is sought
No glory if no food
It is for human good

After bombing in Sulu
UN stops sending so
Still afraid to go
Though fighting is through 

When hunger is calling
It the worst thing ever
Stealing became natural thing

War indeed devastating
Many innocent souls are stolen 
Defending peace to the end

Glory is basically from food
Energizing man to good
Why freedom is hard to upload?

Give freedom to Sulu
Independence too
Don’t let justice to go

    War isn't the best option most times. I was tempted to say that you like food but there's a great iota of truth in your piece freedom is fueled by food. Great you Neldy! Why don't you change the form of this poem from I do not know to verse. Adeleke
