Social Justice Poetry

Personal Connection | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Easy to ignore
Their existence,
Not part of daily
Experience, concerns, routine.
No personal connection.

Perhaps they come into
Occasional view, some
News story about distant
Problems, those people
Doing what they always do.

Unperturbed by mentions of
Strife, decay, struggle.
Walk down the hall,
Well-appointed office,
Comfortable detachment.
