by David A. Romero


Under the upper crust
Our world is full of ingredients
Bubbling up underneath the surface
No one here
Was meant to go hungry
There will be no swollen bellies
No shirt? No shoes?
Thank you for your service!
Fill yourselves up
Let’s turn the tables
So we can set them right
For the first time
Load up your shopping carts
We want you
To look at the aisles of the market
As shelves in your cabinet
Enough with equal opportunity
We want equal access
The harvest belongs
To those who grow it.
