Why Waste? | #Food4AllNigeria


Food_Security_Food_Waste-01The summer sun scorched our farmers in their toil
Long labour lingering as drops of sweat soaked the soil
Alas the dividends of hard harvest in your bowl and plate
Why waste? Some crops take months and yearning years to grow
And patiently they wait to reap the seeds they sow
Yet you groan for every grain of wheat and meat
Quantity way beyond what only you can even eat Arise let’s build food banks across Africa
Fighting hunger from Gambia to Ghana
Each morning as you rise from your bed
Be kind to heartily share your daily bread Same summer sun still scorches destitute in their search
Hunger pangs care-less if food is high in protein or starch
While you wallow in greed and gluttony starvation is their fate
Again, I ask, why waste?
