Famine

Famine struck years ago

When the Earth fell from down below

The belly raged and bruised from within

That is how war did begin

For each new spark of inner dreams

Were washed away by loaded memes

Raining down from above

Full of hate and unrequited love

Spite and anger quashed all hope

Hanging up the birthday rope

Every year the family meets

To fill bellies full with empty sweets

Telling tales of pain and sorrow

Into the night till tomorrow

What a sad lot family can be

When they are caged, not free.
