Social Justice Poetry

Bastion | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

As if their circumstances
Were caused by some
Deficiency of character,
Some cultural proclivity
Leading to destitution.

Latent hatred masquerading
As fact, blanket statements
Smothering the light,
Assumptions based on
Equivocation, obfuscation.

Marginalization.
Keeping them in their place,
Where they belong,
Away from us in our
Bastion of cowardice.
