Black balloon bellies… Sunken red orbs peering out: Visions of hunger… Tables are sagging, Loaded with spoiled surplus food: Empty stomachs growl…

very well penned Millard there is such contrast between the haves and the have nots and the imagery especially in the first stanza is very thought provoking, I never thought we would see the day that we have foodbanks on our own little Island:-( hugs jan xx

Jan, thanks for the read and comments. There but for the Grace of God, could be any one of us. How can there so much food waste with so many starving people among us? Peace and Love, Millard Lowe
