Stupidity Street

I saw with open eyes

Singing birds sweet

Sold in the shops

For the people to eat.

I saw in a vision

The worm in the wheat,

And in the shops nothing

For people to eat;

Nothing for sale in

Stupidity Street.

Ralph Hodgson

      I found it by doing a creative commons image search for starvation and I was so haunted by it… the eyes, the gauntness and the little tare of wheat. Amazing statue, isn’t it? It memorializes children who died as a direct result of government policies. Those ethnicities who were not considered worthy of survival were starved to death. Such a sad place.
