Social Justice Poetry

Extraordinary Talent | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Having reached a position of
Considerable affluence and influence,
He begins constructing an
Origin myth about how he made
Everything happen himself due
To his extraordinary talent and
Superhuman efforts, unlike the
Rest of those lazy slobs
Who are unworthy of success.
For all he cares, they can
Keep toiling away in his factories,
Relegated to their station in life,
Beneath the exceptional people.
