Social Justice Poetry

Growth | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Obsessively feeding
Stockholders
At the expense of
Consumers, people,
Decency, everything.
Promise ever-increasing returns,
Keep earnings artificially high,
Nothing else matters.
Metastasizing abnormal growth,
Never content with enough.
A world gutted by a
Pathological need for
Wealth and status,
Nourishing the few
Who can buy shares and
Their pushers.
Illusions vanish,
Leeches abscond.

    The power of your conviction to outrage and dissent; to raise one’s fist, thrust it in the air and shout, “ENOUGH”! will likely bring you to unsettling paths of learning the cost of liberty. Thank you for your conviction.
