Social Justice Poetry

So Far | A Social Justice Poem by Cattail Jester

When children still
Say “Not you,
You are not welcome”

We have not come so
Far

When the President says:
“Go back, we don’t want you,
All our criminals are black”

We have not come so
Far

When the proud hero of
Wakanda cannot make his
Way to the multiplex

To stand tall in the young
Dreams of boys and girls
Without hate and disdain

We have not come so
Far

Fifty years ago still beats
Alive and well today.
