Social Justice Poetry

Self-Defense | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

A familiar scene
Repeated with startling
Regularity.

One person,
Riddled with fear,
Discriminates against another.

The next step is to
Cry foul and insist the
Victim is the perpetrator.

Building a house of
Maudlin self-pity,
Pretending they’re persecuted.

Maiming others
With impunity by
Claiming self-defense.
