The persistent hunger
Of the rebellious spirit
Feeding on flesh
Without surcease
The hunger of the eyes, the hands,
And the organs of desire
A vast stomach that growls for more
Every day a famine or feast
Devouring all that can be devoured
Stealing every gift
Dominating bodies
Gorging in a pit of bones
The hunger persists
Refusing the light
Desperate for the last morsel
And then wandering the world
Like a hungry ghost.
