In Thy creation my Lord, food is unique
Sans which world cannot survive with good physique
The Goddess of Food is named Anna Lakshmi
One of the eight in Indian pantheon!
The World Food Day this year fifteen has its theme
“Social protection and Agriculture” – beam
To fight hunger at the global level tall
Humanity be saved from the curse for all!
Grow more food-no more fields converted house sites
Waste no food and grains in tons in open space
Donate food to the poor and needy all days
Surely the good we all do in Her name pays!
Man’s duty is to protect the society
From the pain and scourge of present poverty
HER blessings invoked, efforts made aplenty
Bound to bear fruits over the globe pleasantly!
