Social Justice Poetry

Chattel | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Unwanted from the beginning,
Life commencing inauspiciously,
Another number, afterthought,
Second-class citizen.

Relegated to menial status,
Societal constructs,
Hierarchies arbitrarily imposed,
Entrenched oppression.

Prearranged,
Chattel to be
Traded to the
Highest bidder.
