Social Justice Poetry

That Symbol | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Tell me about how
That symbol doesn’t
Mean the subjugation
By force of an entire
People, how it has
Nothing to do with
Base, ugly instincts,
A miserable lust to
Break another human being
In order to enrich oneself,
To stand atop the
Inert carcass of a
Animal freshly slain,
To compensate for a
Festering inadequacy.
