Raging Dumb Hunger

The demanding gets worse
They come in droves
I reach through the flood, begging, shackled
Why can't they follow protocol?
Why do they horde in the doors?
Why do they ignore
Everything I say
Pushing through
Pushing and growling
desperate and grumbling
fuming and foaming
taking everything
shoving everywhere
raging in dumb hunger

Believe in a future, they say
How can we
when everything practical
is falling apart
