My stomach churns.

It is empty.

There is no food left.

The government has taken it away.

The government sells our food to other countries

And leave us starving.

They use the money for guns.

You can’t eat guns.

There is food at the harbour.

It is rotting and spoiling.

The pop stars bought it for us

But we didn’t get it.

People visit our land often.

They watch us starving in the desert.

They watch us die.

Then they shake their heads and move away.

We are all in distress.

Our country is dying.

It’s getting eaten away.

Help us. Please!
