The following is a poem, in the form of a sonnet, composed by a Grade 12 student for his English assignment.

How Can I?

Before I abandon the blessings

On my oversized platter;

I must remember the sufferings

Of the children who have forgotten their laughter.


They patiently stand in line,

Craving for something to eat;

While I sit and dine,

Feasting on some succulent, tender, meat.


How can I reject

What God has bestowed upon me?

May us all He protect,

From the tribulations of staying hungry.


So before I carp about what I’m being fed,

I should remember those who must line-up for their daily bread.
