When farmers die

Wait until there's nothing more
substance of our bodies core
wait until the Vultures come
Tasty morsels they eat some

Patience is a virtue said
wait until you drop for dead
Skinny young their Femurs shown
In the morgue a ringing phone

Glitter shines the worthless gold
rice worth more a hundred fold
What the ulcered stomach need
is a cask for worms to feed

Golden panicles of life
don't mind me but save my wife
empty breasts our children sips
No more milk for blood it drips

Woweee. I didn't even fully grasp the poem. It's so good. Your poetry rocks dude. It sounds classic, like from the victorian period or elizabethan. Where do u get your style from, do u make it up? and which country has a rice shortage?

our country, the good Philippines!

i dont know, it just sprang out of me... this is my style of writing...

this really shows our society
we lived in
were rice farmers are struggling
for a living
this is evidently a manifestation of the lack of support and the corruption that envoloped our govt.
