Social Justice Poetry

Movers and Shakers | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

How easily he forgets
That success is very often
Not the result of pluck,
Or toil, or self-determination.

Talking to a group of colleagues
In an opulent board room,
The grind of the outside world
Doesn’t show its gnarled face.

Smug in their affluence,
Brash movers and shakers,
Out on the streets but
For the whim of fortune.
