Social Justice Poetry

Multi-Tasking Drug | A Social Justice Poem by Donal Mahoney

In California the governor
has signed a law permitting
doctors to use a drug
ending the life of the
terminally ill so they can
die and not suffer.

In Oklahoma the governor
has halted all executions
until a drug can be found
that will kill the condemned
without causing them pain.
Some think a phone call to

the governor of California
from the governor of Oklahoma
asking for the name of
the drug that ends life for
the terminally ill is in order.
Others prefer lynching.
