With hunger comes a somber head

With hunger comes a somber head, 
Thus weakened by the lack of bread; 
The filament of will is thinned, 
The crop is filled with empty wind; 

And time is creeping like a stone, 
An urgent face in pace forlorn; 
And while some goods are left to rot, 
My stomach churns downside to top; 

That by the time the aids arrive, 
I’d have eaten half my own alive; 
Half dead is dragged with clanging bones, 
From mats of flies a dreadful drone; 

And vultures buy time worth the wait, 
The drooling dogs their mouths agape; 
Until the motion goes to rest; 
Upon my carcass hold a feast, 

Fiercer than lion, o meaner than jaws
Sharper than eagle’s raptorial claws
Ripping the heart off the hollow of chest 
Disheveling the rest that they cannot ingest

Racing to sit at the top of the heap
To perch on a sill for a primordial feat 
Greed is the master, hunger the beast; 
Man is the prime yet man is the least…

    A brilliant write -how true -how meaningful. Indeed, overeating causes dullness of brain. Very well said. Thanks for visiting my poem The Bloodshed of Myanmar and for your encouraging comments.
