Social Justice Poetry

Slum Dwellers | A Social Justice Poem by Ananya S. Guha

Slum dwellers are erratic
why look
dwelling in slums
they smell
their food is molten ash
why look
turn your faces (off them)
your bodies must not come close to theirs
why look

slum dwellers die with the hurricane, calm the storm
and before it dies banish
them.
