Social Justice Poetry

Easy Peasy | A Social Justice Poem by Cattail Jester

Thought it would be easy
to be in charge of all this
world.
It’s not easy to be human,
not easy to bracket your
agenda, to act in humility
when the world offers you
power and goods.
But I’ve seen it done, not
so long ago, for eight years.
Enough saber-rattling, enough
pushing and shoving, enough
supremacy talk.
It’s time to smarten up.
Time to approach this job
with eyes to both sides
of the aisle, and eyes to what
all of us offer.
Do your work wisely and well.
