  3. I have difficult time with breaks in haiku lines since haiku first and third line should be able to be reversed. Just an offering:

    what's on the menu?
    asked often by ignorant
    starving innocents

    Hope you will forgive my observation. I do like the message you are conveying very much.

    1. Err...Observation doesn't need forgiveness , I think. I just thought that starving innocents seldom get option to ask "What's on the menu?"
      I'm glad you liked the message here...Thanks!:)

  5. Wow. Hard hitting and painfully honest. Thanks for writing haiku for social activism. This is a writer's responsibility.

  11. That is so true, we waste food which is so bad on our part. I cook twice a day in minimum quantity just to minimize the wastage.
