December 1988


we take it so casually

our ability to eat

anything we want

anytime we want

to eat it

no worries confronting our hearts

we do not fear hunger

we feed it


we have been given much

of us much will be asked

guilt need not haunt us

as we enjoy our meals

and our cupboards are full

unless we have done nothing

to fill the cupboards

of those with less


We Take it so Casually
