Social Justice Poetry

Cleave | A Social Justice Poem by Heidi B. Morrell

By any measure, the unjustly charged
will continue to be shortchanged
and the poor guys living in damp
insect-ridden quarters
will be ripped off by continual apathy.

The sick and suffering
will be overcharged,
while humbly waiting for
a sliver of respect
from the medical profit machine
that is health care here.

The divide between the gilded haves
and those destitute
will remain
to forcefully cleave society
until those with nothing else
but hope rise up.
