Social Justice Poetry

Welfare | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Perverting everything
To support a brutally
Selfish worldview,
Welfare for the rich,
Cast everyone else aside.

Nothing hinders
The inexorable march
For power and spoils,
The hoarding of putrid symbols
Of external satisfaction.

Unaware, uninformed,
A passive populace observes
The overt assault,
Predators circling
Another helpless wretch.
