UN World Food Conference
The World Food Summit in Rome was a very sad affair,
Their goals would be met or the world should beware,
Mister Mugabe of Zimbabwe begged billions more for food,
And those industrial types should get it right and stop being so rude.
UN dedicated diehards pushed to honor what they had pledged,
Itís this war against poverty and hunger they all alleged,
They donít want skepticism or egoism, just send more money,
To the most fertile fields on earth, which isnít very funny.
This indifference of the industrialized nations has just got to stop,
So send billions right away, Ďcause itís a race against the clock,
And stop making accusations and allegations about Mister Mugabe,
He sends the money where he pleases when it gets to Zimbabwe.
