Social Justice Poetry

Protest V | A Social Justice Poem by Gary Beck

Protestors marched on Wall Street
opposed to abuses
of greedy capitalists
wallowing in luxury,
while millions lose jobs, homes,
hope for the future.
Demonstrators were clubbed,
forcibly arrested,
unheralded heroes
speaking out for many,
supported by few,
destined to defeat
by hirelings of the rich,
elected legislators,
appointed bureaucrats,
serving the wealthy,
forgetting obligations
to a suffering nation.
