Social Justice Poetry

Feeding the Beast | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

The plutocrats’ envoy
Sits comfortably across from the
Predictably deferential journalist,
Smugly spouting platitudes about
Fairness and an even playing field.
Carefully scripted deceptions
Disguise dark ulterior motives.

From his lounge chair,
He nods approvingly,
You tell those lame media jerks.
Around him the infrastructure crumbles,
He recently lost his job,
Gas prices sky high,
Feeding the beast.
