Social Justice Poetry

Madam Justice | A Social Justice Poem by John Robert Bland

Madam Justice Ginsburg
allow us to carry your torch
of absolute outrage at the prospect
of the weak flocking behind Trump
as the next President

Such a catastrophe
that the whole world can do without
Cultivating hatred as a means
to promote racism no doubt

Like Hitler using followers
to exterminate millions not so long ago
Have we learned anything
as we watch similarities we should know

I hear those desperate for privilege
over those who don’t look like them
They figure Trump will deliver the goods
given the rooted hatred in him

We will gladly carry the torch
Madam Justice Ginsburg has made her case
and now we decent people need to step up
to prevent this inhumane disgrace
