Social Justice Poetry

A Conservative Shouts No! | A Social Justice Poem by Donal Mahoney

Bill’s a conservative
upset that Meals on Wheels
and Medicaid face possible
cuts in America’s budget.

He yells to colleagues
who also have money that
we shouldn’t mess with
elderly folks who depend
on one good meal a day and
shouldn’t say no to the poor
when they need a doctor.

Making these cuts won’t make
America Great Again.
Making these cuts will make
America sadly inhumane.
Let’s break some day-old bread
with the old and poor and
revise that budget again.
