No Food, No Nation

NO FOOD, NO NATION.

world poetry day in unizik

No food no nation
Is what we chant
To the Oblivion of
The oblivious bourgeoisie and
Proletariat

The green vegetation
Would have been
Allowed to regenerate itself
Instead

The bourgeoisie
Plunder the plantation
Planted by nature to
Nourish and nurture
Our nation
Yet we chant
No food no nation!

Mother Earth sighs
With sorrow of
The salvaged as
Her fauna is been lost

Her fecundity is of Trivial issue to
The ones she feeds
Yet they chant
No food no nation!

Her offspring
Offset the ancient landmark and
Eupheminise it
Industrial revolution

Agriculture is now
A culture of
The uncultured in
A culturally declined geography
Yet we chant
No food no nation!

Though, hunger and
Starvation smite us
Like the plagues of Egypt
We profess
No food no nation
Alas! There is no Practicalness of
What we profess
