Social Justice Poetry

Tumult or Truth: Incite-ful Media | A Social Justice Poem by Lee Anne G. Hall

Inciting tumult of our own
Senseless scrambling, senseless drone
Of society set to a frequency
By an underhanded licensee

Mocking, cackling, fed by fables

Imbalanced bounteous and empty tables

A widening gap between what they see

And what is the reality

So busy with their frantic crawl

Confusing ignorance for gall 
Failing to see they’re being used

To further abuse the abused

Some spout false rhetoric of fairness
Conjured from their unawareness
The luring, dark spellbinders’ hiss
Slickly convincing them of this

But better hearts seek better days
Once lifted from the writhing frays
Of eye for eye, tooth for tooth
When we decide to search the truth
