Table Scraps

Posted on Dec 12, 2012


We’re all fighting
for table scraps
to stay afloat
in times so sad
Whilst politicians
fight for power
scraps of their
own in their tower
Food prices up
far too high
fuel running low
can’t even fly
Hundreds apply
for one job alone
whilst most struggle
to keep their homes
Table scraps is
what we fight for
it can only end
one way, way of war
