Social Justice Poetry

Atrophy | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Force the public schools
To atrophy so that few
Can accurately discern
The real issues that
Affect their lives.

Create a propaganda
Echo chamber where
Bigoted beliefs are pounded
Into receptive brains,
Willing followers.

Pander to base impulses,
Throbbing amygdalas
Screaming with fear,
Ready to act on
Intentional misinformation.

Blur the line between
Reality and fiction,
Fashion an alternate universe
Where incarceration is freedom,
Dictatorship safety.
