HUNGER

 

By

Jared Angira

 

 

 

The maize will grow

once when 

long rains have come

and army worms
have gone

rations

will sink

with hunger

and the intestines
will straighten

But 

that day

shal find many

in the invalid home
with collar’d fathers

at bedside mass

and others

in graves

with maggots
on palatable meal
and for the grave majesties

the maize cob

shall be

for a rusty funeral feast

 

 

Jared Angira

Jared Angira’s Poems deal mainly with the plight of the rural poor and with nature.
