Social Justice Poetry

Cavalier | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Never having endured
A single day of discrimination,
Where they were treated
Differently solely
Because of how they looked –
Deemed to be less than human –
Traded as a commodity
To enrich soulless captors,
They declare that all strife
Is over, deep historical,
Personal wounds glossed-over
In a single cavalier pronouncement,
The suffering of millions
Reduced to a sound bite
Promulgated by thoughtless louts.
