    The acrostic reads famine enimaf (a double acrostic where the theme word meets in the middle).

    Fragile little children cry

    about the food that's gone;

    misty winds simply imply

    inescapable truth of toxic dawn.

    No one is fed; beleaguered try

    eating old fish and prawns.

    E pluribus unum has no value

    no one can eat silver or gold

    ibexes hide, but they are taboo

    macaws died; jungle turned cold

    animals attack, even the gnu

    famine was always foretold.

    I'm out of practice. But here is a try.

    food was mouth watering fragrant

    and filled my belly; I enjoyed it.

    many friends ate the last meal

    in the center of the trailer park

    now we all go hungry and need

    everyone shares what they have.

    Frustration and

    Anger, empty


    Infants with

    Nothing to



    Fix me a burger

    A ham sandwich, too

    My belly distended

    I might need a few

    No need for lettuce

    Easy on the mayo, dude.

    feeding mouths that shout to shut others out

    and denying the silenced masses

    macabre feasts for fascists

    inaugurating a leader no one knows about

    nurturing the lifeless without empathy

    eat their lies and live eternally as earth dies

    F-ood at its record scarcity

    A-bsent till in perpetuity

    M-isdirected plenty elsewhere

    I-naccessible to one's care

    N-onexistent where it's needed

    E-ver unreached by the near dead.

    ok, gave it a try~ hope it helps


    Feeling the pains of hunger

    Always wondering why

    Malnourished are so many

    Inconceivable so many will die

    Nations that are forgotten

    Everywhere some will not survive
