Feeder terminal 1: no 58
grateful for what we’re given.
nineteen feeding stations lined 10 metres apart,
each labelled, colour coded for those illiterate,
and we, allocated, queued, wrists banded wait,
cheery volunteers meticulous with the weight;
research data shows that refugees can survive
on half the recommended daily calorific rate.
we’re grateful; another day opens to see us still alive.
