Social Justice Poetry

Better Lives | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

With single-minded
Zeal, they’re off
To help those less
Fortunate live better lives.

A project to bring
Relief to the remote
Village in exchange for
Eternal fealty to dogma.

A perpetuation of the
Same kind of hierarchy
That keeps them down
In the first place.

Domination by any
Word is still the
Same wretched exercise;
Selfish, self-serving.
