Empty Speeches

Rich,poor,hunger ,liberty


1. Hunger & Freedom

Deep gnawing at the innards is the relentless hunger

the talk of freedom and liberty stokes my anger

the fools who  give speeches from Ivory Towers

are they  aware of the viciousness of poverty power?

rolling in  riches with unbound luxurious life all around

their talk sounds to me like a bark of the blood hound

let them come out and even for a day in ghettos survive

then I will  reconcile  and not allow my anger to revive


(I was going through  photos taken during my Chicago

Trip and the photo of a jobless girl on the pavement

spurred me to write this poem)
