Social Justice Poetry

Caseworker’s Rounds | A Social Justice Poem by Donal Mahoney

(Cabrini-Green
Public Housing
Chicago, 1961)

Where I am now
there are no leas, no
sheep feeding.
There are tenements,
children breeding.
Where I am now
there are no trees, no
wrens lighting.
There are halls far, dark,
an old man peeing.
