Social Justice Poetry

Raging Fever | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

In times of insecurity,
They coalesce into agitated
Swarms; screaming for relief,
Yearning for a big daddy to
Come along and make
Everything all right again.

As is always the case,
Someone or many someones
See the glow of opportunity
And swoop in making empty
Promises that soothe the
Raging fever of uncertainty.

Once the horde has been
Seduced, their masters rub
Their hands together with
Glee and prepare for the
Upcoming bacchanal of
Looting and pillaging.
