Not Eating

Not Eating

A Poem by Heather Clayton

There once was a man
who did not eat
70 years of span
to this very week.
But one day he tried
to eat a morsel or two
he was very suprised
to find his food grew.
His tummy ached;
he questioned life,
what is truly saved
and what is strife.
But the next day
he didn't eat
and all I can say
is he's dead on his feet.

(true story from a man in India)
