Spaghetti Feed | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Organizing a spaghetti feed
For a sick child
Instead of supporting
Universal health care.

Raising funds for local schools,
Then voting for people who
Cut education funding and
Endeavor to privatize it.

Gathering clothes
For the poor while
Demonstrating against
A living wage.

Commonplace paradoxes,
Caring people destroying things
They claim to support.
Unhealthy contradictions.
