Social Justice Poetry

Woodpeckers and Cable News | A Social Justice Poem by Donal Mahoney

Simply because anchors
have little to say means
they’ll keep saying it
till others believe.
This is America.
They have that right.

Woodpeckers drum
on maple and oak
and redwood trees
hours each day
for insects that
keep them alive.

Matthews and Hannity
drum on noggins
at night for converts
among the faithful
on couches
and recliners.

They’re popes without
mitre or crozier, preaching
in America’s Square,
infallible for an hour
while in the forests
woodpeckers sleep.
