The Politics of Hunger

The Politics of Hunger The politics of hunger, The politics of greed, The politics of want and The politics of need. The swagger and the bluster Of Trump rampaging free, The bad deals made for Brexit- Poor choices made by May. Chemicals that will not degrade, Plastics in every cell. Good health eludes the poor- They never shall be well. The rich will leave the earth, Off to planets new, Whilst the humble will be left But ruination cannot undo. The politics of hunger Juxtaposed with greed But all we should want Is to fulfil what we need. Copyright Emily Joshua
