Social Justice Poetry

Jack Up | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Complete lack of
Pretense,
No longer hiding —
No need to —
The new normal.
Flagrantly
Slash the size of
Vital goods,
Cheapen products until
Barely usable,
Downsize until a
Dozen means six —
Or less.
Eliminate unnecessary
Frills that used to
Be part of the deal.
People will bellyache for
A while, but their
Memories are short.
Oh yes, one more thing…
Remember to jack up
The price.
