Social Justice Poetry

Plays the Part | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

He plays the part well,
The down-home, good old boy
You could sit down and
Have a beer with and maybe
Chat about how much you
All love the country and
Real people, not those
Miscreants on the coasts.

They vote him in and he
Immediately shows his
True stripes, it’s not
About taking care of the
Small town guy, it’s about
Showering his wealthy buddies
With lavish gifts,
Taking care of number one.

When his followers start
Catching on a bit,
He simply puts on a hat
And boots and gives a
Patriotic/religious speech
Stressing the importance of
Family and community,
Strength, honor, deceit.
