a poem on the cost of rice

Maybe you noticed food costs keep going up?


the cost of rice is up
and corn and wheat and oats
and food costs more and gas costs more
it all goes up while we
sink down.
if we can't change our ways
how can we behave
if we can't make change
how will we pay?
who will eat who if this becomes
dog eat dog?
who wins when everyone is losing?
what's the solution to our social pollution
if you scream you might not be heard.
but sit too quietly and you're ignored.
don't become a problem you can solve.
