Social Justice Poetry

Believe It or Not | A Social Justice Poem by Donal Mahoney

We see stories on the internet
that are simply fake news,
many of them malicious as well.

It’s hard to tell the difference
but a single sentence found
among a nest egg of facts

sounds too true to be false:
The 400 richest Americans
have as much wealth as all

41 million African Americans.
One doesn’t have to be black
to understand why this matters.
