Ethiopia as depicted in “Global Family Portrait” 

A poor man’s hunger 

Coupled with his wish for peace 

His work never done 

But abundance of generosity 

Few luxuries 

But many Pleas 

For humanity 

To experience peace

Free from 

Treason 

Wars 

People pleasin’

Outbreaks 

Poison 

Turn the noise off 

Settlements 

Shootings 

Governmental pollution 

Hatred 

Crime 

Only want what’s mine 

And yours 

See, it’s funny 

How this guy with nothing 

Doesn’t want more for himself

His Belly aching 

His Fingers shaking 

A life without essentials

Bereft 

Left 

But his only request 

Is world peace 

So Outrageous 

Almost contagious 

Now my wish too 

Only, I wish that Ethiopian man had food.
