Fighting fires on the social justice front line is a little like whack-a-mole, with your arm in a sling
Peter Rouleau of the group Voices for Change Halton attended the Put Food in the Budget campaign meeting on Friday December 2. He sent us this poetic reflection on the meeting.

Riding out the storm of austerity
Huddled together on a raft made of dented cans
Lost in the ramen sea
near the banks bottom line
stranded on this vessel ringing the bell for social justice
wondering, wandering, willingly
Fighting fires on the social justice front line
is a little like whack-a-mole, with your arm in a sling
Build a wall from dented cans held together with K.D.
skating at the swamp and the ice is getting thinner
corporations want to help the poor by helping themselves
one mans poison is another mans profit
Racism, classism, nepotism, austerity, prosperity,
charity, big banks, food banks, shooting blanks,
blankets, bigger jets, pilot projects,
reject, eject, appreciation , appropriation
This Godzilla has no conscience so set your social justice Fazer's on stun
Keep up the pressure on this manipulation nation untouchable corporation
