Social Justice Poetry

Not Unreasonable | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

It’s really not
Unreasonable to envision,
And build, a world
Where everyone has a
Real chance to succeed
And community matters more
Than allowing some misanthrope
In a lavish castle to
Hoard most of the wealth.
It’s not out of the question
To behave like the empathic
Beings we are and make sure
No damaged person can
Take advantage of others.
Fairness is an achievable
Goal but for the few
Who don’t believe in it
And make sure, at any cost,
That it doesn’t materialize.
