Social Justice Poetry

Front Page | A Poem by Scott Thomas Outlar

Here’s a city…burn it down
Here’s division…rip its throat out
Here’s a spine…feel it snapping
Here’s the war…welcome home

Here’s the truth…media blackout
Here’s the riot…pour gasoline
Here’s the protest…keep it peaceful
Here’s the fallout…nuclear

Here’s the front page…corporate owned
Here’s the ghetto…unemployed
Here’s the future…no one’s safe now
Here’s the death kiss…on the cheek

Here’s the postscript…eulogized
Here’s the finance…global banking
Here’s the fiat…golden boardroom
Here’s the pink slip…broken home

Here’s the garbage…ruined streets
Here’s the teargas…bloody eyes
Here’s the damage…empty pockets
Here’s the solution…lips sealed shut
