Social Justice Poetry

Staring at Screens | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

They know that suffering
People are rendered much
More docile when their attention
Is diverted by keeping
Them continually entertained.

If they’re staring at screens
All day, they won’t have the
Time to look behind the curtain
And realize they’ve been
Deliberately mislead.

Compliance encouraged through
Diversion, careful redirection
Of pain and passion,
Numbing thought and activity,
Uprising neutralized.
