Hunger Reins

Hunger holds the reins, stimulating or stifling
driving the plant to bend to the sun and root deep
herding the roe deer toward unsafe pasturing
Hunger holds the reins

An emptiness of desire unfed, ends fitful sleep 
as moon-tossed men pull threads of sanity hiding 
from deep within a memory of fullness creeps 
Hunger holds the reins

Mouths and stomaches, hearts and souls all need minding
unsated they distort, deform, in rampant leaps 
so feed your needs in earnest or you'll be finding
Hunger holds the reins
