See Their Faces

Look! look! see the
Endless sea of faces,
Sunburnt, hardened
By long nights and longer days
Of empty hands and emptier
stomachs.
See each face, smoldering,
So alive, dancing on the
Threads of death.

Look! look! notice
each face.
All the same.
Every face, identical.
Look and see: the face of
a child.
Hungry;
Hungry for more than an echo,
An echo of faint promises.
Hungry: starving and thirsting
For more than your spare change.
Hungry for a change.
