My Don Quixote

My Don Quixote

Why do I keep charging windmills?
Rebuking ills.
What creates my craving to try?
Asking why.
When will the urgency dispel?
Hunger quell.
Citizens clashing where I dwell.
Injustice spikes issues in the news.
Friends, family sport different views
Rebuking ills, asking why, hunger quell.

Definitely like the reuse of the short lines as the last line. Great choice of subject.

This one's tight, Judi. It's very present day, and the turmoil is not unfamiliar. There's a realistic balance between the theoretical (the "windmills," the "views") and the practical (the hunger).
