Ode to Roy Moore and Governor Kay Ivey | A Social Justice Poem by Eliza Mimski

Thank you, Alabama
Thank you thank you thank you
Thank you for Roy Moore
We couldn’t ask for more.

Thank you, Alabama
Thank you thank you thank you
Thank you for Kay Ivey
She really helps our psyche.

Thank you to Roy Moore
his mores on the floor
Thank you to Kay Ivey
She makes us feel so grimy
We wish we’d had a father
We wish we’d had a mother
We wish we’d had a father
We wish we’d had a mother
We wish we’d had a father and a mother
Just like you.

Thank you to Roy Moore for all you’ve done for girls and women
Thank you to Kay Ivy for all you’ve done for girls and women

Darn that Alabama
You are our top banana
We love your politicians
Gosh darn it they are Christians

Hubba hubba hubba hubba
We gotta gotta gotta love ya!

Dreams Weird and Hard | A Social Justice Poem by Krushna Chandra Mishra

As much insult you have
heaped upon the weak
thinking they cannot
confront you,
you in your own
weirdest of dreams
shall never have met
how more than that
in simplicity and unity
these people of the best
of spines available to the species
in the longest story of its
evolution shall return you
making you recoil in silence
to your crooked civilisation’s
smoking spinelessness.

Code of Conduct | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

We are much better than
Allowing children to starve,
Condemning people to die from
Lack of affordable health care,
Cheering on a frontier-town
Code of conduct,
Relishing a total lack of empathy
For fellow citizens,
Delivering every break to
People who don’t need them,
Withholding opportunity from
Others deemed unworthy,
Shunning the vulnerable,
Tolerating hatred and bigotry,
Building a society that exalts
Cruelty as it staggers backward.
