bloated bellies,
pleading eyes,
gangly limbs,
twitch then die.

dirty brown water,
diseased throughout,
brick hard earth,
breaking picks.

scorching sun,
temperatures rising,
science sees a problem,
money says no.

christians peddling misery,
praying equals hope,
hope dwindles fast,
god doesn't answer.

kill thy neighbor,
resources dwindling,
owned by few,
jealously guarded.

mansions lit,
gardens watered,
could feed thousands,
instead of two.

clean their houses,
get some water,
mow the lawns
for a cup of grain.

stinking bodies,
never washed,
hold them closer,
comforts all you've got.
