Survival of the Fittest….


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”.
