You say "hunger" is the correct word? Ok, but isn't letting our own people starve a sort of moral famine?
Read the monologue called "Hunger" here

We welcome your comments.

I live under an Appalachian sky
where the stars don't care or wonder why 
just what your vote is gonna buy
the little man or the big lie
when my child is hungry who hears her cry
why doncha c'mon over and just say hi

is there famine in the USA?
is there famine in the USA?

served my country fought the yellow man
for reasons I still don't understand
at least in the war I had my command
learned to kill with these 2 hands
now I can't feed my children and there is no plan
to keep my job from going to a foreign land

is there famine in the USA?
is there famine in the USA?
watch you're mouth boy
watch what you say
there ain't no famine in the USA

Election day is coming soon
and there are eyes in the Appalachian moon
it sees the dreams swept away like a broom
and whole families living in one small room
we go hungry and the economy booms
sickbed radio plays the same old tune

is there famine in the USA?
is there famine in the USA?
watch you're mouth boy
watch what you say
there ain't no famine in the USA
