Social Justice Poetry

Government | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Government isn’t some
Arbitrary concept, some
Set of rules that is
Imposed by an abstract
Actor; it’s a reflection
Of the human beings who
Have designed it. If they
Don’t care for each other
And function out of greed
And selfishness, their
Government will reflect those
Particular preferences;
If they care for one another
And value the greater good,
Then their government will
Do the same. There’s no magic
To it, the people get what
They champion or tolerate.
