Hunger Games Never Take A Vacation

Hunger Games Never Take A Vacation
Schools around the county will be letting out for summer vacation
Hungry kids out of school with its federal school lunch donation
Hunger is the original 24/7 champ
A child’s dreams to without mercy tramp
If a card game it would be a casino holding a royal flush
Sapping the soul, the development of the child’s mind and body to crush
Hunger is the ultimate robbing Peter to pay Paul
Lacking calories the child is slammed into the hopeless wall
2nd Harvest with your help can break the summer cycle of not enough to eat
One dollar is leveraged into three meals which is how hunger we will beat
Instant gratification of knowing that you have made a difference, have given a senior or child a chance
To on that day and in the coming ones free them from the grip of the empty stomach gnawing trance
Time to boot the Hunger Games out of this county for good
Now we know it exists, do and do it now we must, we should!

  1. Perhaps the darkness of men's hearts manifest as the dark agent. Perhaps the darkness mounts up to divine the family posing as a religion. Perhaps the true perpetrator is the stress within our own hearts.
