Social Justice Poetry

Wave | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

They were once
Wealthy and exploited
Their workers with
Unmitigated gusto,
Their status and
Influence unchecked.

Then the bottom
Fell out, their
Joy ride halted
By a tidal wave
Valuing the common man
Instead of the magnate.

They complain bitterly,
Never getting over
The loss of riches
That weren’t theirs
But for the toil
Of the many.
