Social Justice Poetry

Resume | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Never having been
In an inferior position,
He pontificates at length
About success, hard work,
Bootstraps, freedom.

Money earned through
Mettle, tenacity, inheritance.
Not a single day of struggle
In his resume.
Martini swirling in pristine glass.

A study in self-gratification,
Narcissistic dullard,
Seeking validation only for himself,
A broken shell of unfeeling
