Social Justice Poetry

Shell | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

His life
Expendable,
Skin color
Being a determinant
Factor in assessing
The lack of value of a
Human being.

Death sentence
Delivered by a shell of
A person,
Images of his father
Shouting at him
Playing on a never-ending
Loop in his head.

Shrug it off,
Fabricate some middle school
Quality explanation of
What happened,
Those predisposed will
Buy it, he did what
He had to do.
