Social Justice Poetry

Absent | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Raging against government,
The parts they don’t agree with,
The measures that help people or
Limit the ability of would-be
Tyrants to trample on others.

Hoisting the flag of the nation
They don’t believe in,
Systematically undermining
All semblance of society
In the name of freedom.

Concocting a government
In their own image:
Brutal, callous,
Selfish, self-serving,
Basic decency absent.
