It bites and pains 

She longs for the plate of rice 

It’ll be hours before she gets it 

She tries to increase her  pace

But shes frail and weak

For hunger bites to her spirits        

          *   *   *

I see cattle resting alongside the road

Resting? That’s what I thought 

They are too weak to move

And some are dead already 

The drought has been intense 

For hunger bites to their spirit 

          *   *   *

It was on TV someday

A kid suckling on a dog

It was a dirty rooming dog

When hunger bites it’s impossible to ignore 

For hunger bites to your spirit 

          *   *   *

The whole village lie under the Acacia 

Waiting on Red Cross to deliver 

It’s takes too long sometimes 

They serve the living and bury the dead

For hunger bites to their spirit

  1. Vielen Dank für Ihre Antwort mein ehemaliger Vermieter hat die Abrechnung ja schon lange erhalten (Verwaltung.) Er meint jetzt nur er könne uns damit etwas ärgern, er behält die Kaution auch solange ein bis wir die Abrechnung bekommen. Ich verstehe nur nicht warum die eine Abrechnung so reibungslos geklappt hat und jetzt diese zieht er so unnötig in die Länge.Mit Freundlichen GrüßenSandra
