Justice Denied In Massachusetts - Poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Let us abandon then our gardens and go home
And sit in the sitting-room
Shall the larkspur blossom or the corn grow under this cloud?

    So, I'm doing a project for school where I have to compare a poem with another work of art that have the same theme. I chose justice. If someone could help me a little by breaking this down, I'd appreciate it a lot. Is the theme about slaves and how poorly they were treated, but they're trying to build a better life for their kids?
    I may have read it completely wrong but just wanted to make sure :)
    Thanks!

    If anyone doesn't like this poem it is because they don't understand the meaning. Do some research before you judge a poem, not all poems are black and white and some have deeper meaning into this world that we live in. No poem should be disliked because of people not digging into it. This poem digs into deep political problems that were very prevalent at the time. (Report)Reply
