Social Justice Poetry

Talking Head | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Ubiquitous talking head
Flaps his crooked mouth about
Character and poverty.

Finding yourself poor
Is a personal flaw caused
By the luck of the draw.

Lazy analysis of
Complex issues,
Ignoring obvious data.

Born with no opportunities,
Higher likelihood
You’ll stay there.
