The woman checks the fridge one last time
Like magically it will have filled up
And she will be able to feed her 3 children
The cupboards are all bare
She looks in despair, she wants to die
How did we get here to this place of disgrace?
With three hungry mouths to feed
She doesn’t have a choice
She takes to the streets to provide
Using her body as the only means she has
To survive in a cruel world where it’s
“Survival of the Fittest”.
