You are to write a poem that describes your or someone-you-know's aversion to something.

Author Notes
According to Feeding America, 16 million kids struggle with hunger each year. How is this not a priority for our communities and government? Summer is especially difficult without the breakfasts and lunches provided to the ones who need it. The future of our country, can't learn, can't sleep, can't exercise, and go to bed crying with hunger pains.

How to help? Give to area food pantries, be aware of hungry children in your community, and be their voice when federal funding issues are topics in state and national government.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
