Social Justice Poetry

Strange Plantation Fruit | A Social Justice Poem by G. Louis Heath

In the emptiness that clouded him,
on the farm of ignorance that isolated

him, he conceived a towering idea.
He crafted it from bananas and

pineapples, a totally juicy-fruit
concoction to rock the boat of man.

More than an idea, a true ideal. Blue-
sky, pie-in-the-sky proclaimed the

robes in the castle. Do not sully the
coin of the realm with the acidic

bubbles lifting from your brain.
Pop them before your wild notions

become strange plantation fruit.
