A choreographed dance of heart and deed
fulfills the spirit that denounces greed.
Why, now, should there still be hunger
when all around there’s food to plunder?
Silos sleep, filled to the brim with grain
for prices elevated to obtain more gain.
Why, now, should our children weep
from hunger pains that chases sleep?
Man sneers at over indulgent greed
when there are empty mouths to feed.
Time blinks in favor of a heart that’s giving
and shares the joy of their own thanksgiving.
