Inspired by the theme at
I am a bit late today, but ... well I had other things to do. Today the prompt is starve and it brought memories back of the Haiku Challenge of Few Miles last february when one of the prompts was famine. I had some difficulties with writing than a haiku on the theme, so today ... I hope to do better with starve.
every day again
all around the world children die
through lack of food
why? still there is hunger and famine
even in the Western World
seeking for food
in the garbage
in the garbage
thrown away without thought
a Happy Meal

Well ... see you next day.
I agree with your shock, and I wonder why this has to happen in our world.
A brave haiku that drives home the message of suffering and inequality in the world. Well said.
It's especially shocking when one considers the money spent of wars and politics. And pretty disgusting.
Thought provoking set, Chevrefeuille, but the last one really packed a punch for me! Well done.
Very powerful, and important questios to ask ourselves.
your question is to the point..Why is it still there?? Impacting haiku..
Bravo. We took the same angle. Not much choice, with this prompt.
That someone in the world is starving, really starving, not just hungry, is a tragedy. It's inconceivable that the governments of some of these lands are corrupt and greedy, so that the help that does come, never makes it to those in need.
I get worked up about these issues!
Thank you my dear visitors for these wonderful comments. I really can say that this prompt was very difficult to write a haiku on.
That last one made a mark. So much wastage of food. Really sad.
Tragic and still so true and it seems as if things will get worse in Europe before they get better.
The giant behind Happy Meal was also a major sponsor during a supposedly healthy event like the London Olympics this year while the rest of the world are dealing with hunger pangs. World is going crazy. With you on this concern.
I'd say you did an amazing job with this. It really is tragic. The last one really brings home how senseless waste is.
