A shot on the tv
a mass of children
half naked
tattered clothes
blowing in the wind

the ground below is muddy
and their feet can't be seen
through the caked on dirt

the well
the towns source of water
is not much better
a sea of brown
with a line
of children drinking,
that's been their only food for a week

and someone changes the channel
"Those money mongers"
he spits in disgust
as I ponder it in my mind

how dare I
hate my life
when I've seen
the likes
of that?
