Hunger? for what?

How would you like to hear about someone who toiled for hours in the scorching sun,

Collecting bags over bags of salt for flavouring food,

How would you like to hear about the death of that person,

Heard he died of hunger,

Hunger.

How would you like to hear about the group that sails into the deep blue,

Bringing crates of fresh fish for the table,

How would you like to hear about their death,

Heard they died of hunger too,

Hunger.

Have you ever been hungry?

Ever went without salt in your food?

Ever felt like the fish on your table’s too spicy?

Have you ever been hungry?

A hunger that could kill?

Hunger.
