Children How Can I Feed You

Children how can I feed you
The hirers and firers are closed
Children if you are starving
I’ll let you eat my toes

Children I know you are hungry
But your father has no wheat
I cannot bake my bread for you
So I’ll let you eat my feet

Children you are thinner now
And I’ve been out to beg
I’ve not been granted a halfpenny
So I’ll let you eat my leg

Children will you ever grow
How do I give you a better start
Take out your knives and forks my pets
I’ll let you eat my heart

Children I am nothing now
I have nothing left to give
I’m going far away now so
You’ll have a better chance to live

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
