Social Justice Poetry

Empty Plate | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Superfluous words of
Instruction, castigation,
Pompously meted out
By the comfortable.

Cavalier imposition
Of distorted morality,
Cruelty promulgated by
Lifeless husks.

An empty plate
Contemptuously
Dropped in front of
The starving.
