Social Justice Poetry

Nickel and Dimed | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

She lifts up another
Necessity —
Winces resignedly —
Places it in the cart
Alongside all the other
Exhaustively engineered

Stopping by the
Gas station —
Sigh of forced
Compliance —
Involuntary participant in
Rigged games,
Nickel and dimed
To extinction.
