Starvation, starvation starvation.
For the few, their bags are full
Bur for many, the stomach is empty
For you and me, starvation is subject of contemplation
Wondering why starvation?
Food rots in the granary
Food is thrown in the sea
In hotels, bins are full of garbage
Shops are stocked with food
But prices are skyrocketing
Why starvation where food is plentiful?
