Hunger

He saw two rag-pickers
Fighting over who found it first -
The raw and stale bread loaf.
Their mindless strife stopped
And turned into a disappointment
When the stray street dog
Taking advantage of their quarrel
Ran away with the bread loaf...

He realized from that episode
Perhaps the hunger of belly
Is much stronger in life
Than the hunger of heart.
