Social Justice Poetry

Newberry Library, Chicago | A Social Justice Poem by Donal Mahoney

Despite the digital holocaust
of computers and cell phones,

Newberry Library remains
the Vatican of books

with the right sounds,
a cough now and then,

a page turning, while out
on the street a beggar

asks for spare change.
Workers with none walk away.
