hunger vs. thirst

hunger should not be taken lightly
it drives to extraordinary lengths
you'd eat another, have and will
provide for the fist within the gut
surface not deeper than a bird bath
ocean spouts but sea not satiated
greenery a brown bag beggar and you?
dead in days even planet churns itself liquid
cares to drink over eat and prove trump
its terrifyingly herculean ecological thirst
