Social Justice Poetry

Gentleman | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

He promoted himself as
An enlightened, educated,
Open-minded gentleman
Who could analyze
A thorny situation and
Deliver an even-handed
Verdict on what was
Really going on and
How it might be handled.
He presented himself as
A wise individual with the
Ability to understand the
World from a variety of
Perspectives; as long
As his proclamations
Were not challenged
In any way and nobody
Pointed out his bigotry.
