Topsy Turvy World


I live in a strange world.

A world that celebrates life on Mars,
but destroys life in the womb.

A world that values a gorillas life
over a small boys.

I live in a world where we give money
to the lazy
but ignore our vets, refugees, 
and poor.

If I believe officer's lives matter,
then black peoples don't.

Instead of creating a third bathroom,
we open the doors for all to enter.

I live in a world where celebrities,
and felons,
can run for office.

If you don't do parenting my way,
you are doing it wrong!

A world where "medical use"
is undervalued to "prescription use".
Though both can help and hurt equally.

I live in a world where "Christian"
means bigot.
And don't even get me started on
"those damn Mormons".

When it comes to sex
everything goes:
Pornography
Trafficking
Affairs
Child Molestation
One night stands
Rape
It's there, but lets not talk of uncomfortable things.
Instead, let's portray sex in our media
as fun, meaningless, and carefree.

While we are at it
lets put violence in our video games
and then wonder why in the hell
people kill people.

Let's worry about things like
bathrooms, gorillas, and parent shaming
while there our shootings, hunger,
and terrorists.

Common sense, kindness, human decency
are things of the past.

Let's take a selfie.

Thirty. Nerdy. And thriving.

I just turned thirty. That demands some serious self reflection. My twenties were wonderful and awful and everything in between. I went to c...
