Social Justice Poetry

Where He Began | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

A former carny pontificates
At great length about freedom
When what he really promotes is
Abject selfishness driven by
Perpetually flashing images of
What it was like to scrap
For a living years ago,
People stepping on him,
Taking advantage of him,
Looking down on him,
A harsh life of insecurity and
Debasement coloring his every
Waking moment and assuring him
That it’s OK to punish
Everyone else so that he
Doesn’t end up where he began.
