how soon does bad become
April 11, 2015 at 1:23pm

do you remember what happens when we start saying things like –

all Catholics are bad,

all protestants are bad,

all Jews are bad,

all Palestinians are bad,

all blacks are bad,

all commies are bad,

all japs are bad,

all Americans are bad,

all kids are bad,

all single mothers,

all Paddys,

all immigrants,

all republicans,

all democrats

all Russians,

all Chinese

all Tibetans ,…

how soon does bad become

less than

or sub human

or worthy of extinction?

Boomerz

I live only in memory.

The day to day does not inspire me,

Only wanting to sit here and think of what used to be

Strung out on the drug America.

Safe only in my own home,

Locked doors, paid taxes, insurance policies protect me.

TV-petrol- chemicals nourish me.

People not like me, outrage me.
