Jerry Reynolds

Never Enough


From a cage in their spirit
Bursts a rage of swallows
Wolfing everything in site
While still in flight.

Though great the trying
Hungry can’t be served
Not for lack of caring-
Can’t satisfy the birds.

    After reading it four times I realized that I am a simple man, lacking understanding. Can you enlighten me?

    • Jerry Reynolds

      We cant feed the hungry because we can’t satisfy the rich.

      Some people are never satisfied, or is it birds? Insatiable appetites, or is it desires? a real mind bender Jerry. - Phil A.

      Food for thought feedeth not the hungry belly.
