Hunger (And Irony) In America

If you want something to eat
And ask strangers, this
Is regarded as something that
Is unquestionably amiss.

But if you do this on Halloween
All is fine and dandy ---
Those aforementioned strangers
Happily hand over candy.

We’re all part of the same food chain
Where we do our daily climbing:
Survival there so often depends on
Something as simple as timing.
