……….give us this day our daily bread
some have food, but cannot eat
some can eat, but have no food.
We found food and we can eat
Glory be to thee oh lord.
Once was a time, when daily bread was a major need
from eras marked by; boars roasted over open fires,
fruits picked fresh from forest floors
broths made in pans enough to feed a neighbourhood.
To new one’s filed with; fancy dishes vibrant with colours
fruits grown in air filled with who knows what
meals that leave your tongue tingly with pleasure
but bellies hollow with churning walls.
What then was the essence of daily bread?
Man has indeed come a very long way
from meeting basic needs to creating greedy vacuums
Man has indeed come a long way
from conquering the wild to conquering his neighbour
Man has travelled far…..
very far from the person he was or sort to become to the person he despised.
In the search of daily bread
steal not the flour for todays child.
