Social Justice Poetry

Temporary Assistance | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

She rages at the people
Who receive support
To feed their children,
Have a roof over their heads,
Remain contributing members
Of society rather than
Scorned pariahs,
Cast off and left to perish.
She conveniently forgets the
Many times that some person
Hlped her in a time of need,
A friend, a co-worker,
A family member, someone who
Believed that she just needed
A little temporary assistance.
