Hunger

I wrote these lines some 7 years back, publishing it now...


I remember the face of a child

Who was not more than five

Standing near a snacks seller

His face dirty and eyes mild..

Clothes were torn

Walking bare feet

Crying as he had nothing to eat...

When a woman threw some left over

Into the stinking bin it shone

He spared not a second

And picked and licked

But still looked unsatisfied

"Military expenditure over $1.46 trillion worldwide",

"Billions spent on erecting statues, skyscrapers - country’s pride"


The headlines in snack stained Newspaper cried.....!!!!
