Rice for Hand Sanitiser production


Between my stomach and your hands
You choose to select your hands
And leave my stomach aside
By prioritising your scarcity over my scarcity

When my stomach cries for food
You choose to convert my food into your sanitiser
And convince me that this is what I need it at this point of time
And not something which I really fall short off

You create godowns in my name
And claim that it will serve me in times of need
But when a need has arisen
You divert it to the ones for what you feel is your need

I understand your concern of Corona infection
But I do also want you to understand my suffering of hunger
Which is a much worse situation than a virus infection
While I do understand your fear of infection, it can’t be at the cost of my defection
