Social Justice Poetry

Somnambulist | A Social Justice Poem by JD DeHart

do not close your mind
to the back row sitters.
all of them need you.
do not grow old
behind your podium,
spilling test after test.
liven the curriculum,
take a risk, and write
a new lesson for them.
write life for them
on the board and show
them the dance
that goes with it.
