All the likes

I find stupid funny
liking shit absurd
you think that your smarter
because you invent new words
you claim enlightenment
while preaching your ignorance
keep screaming like it’s working
and ignore the reality as is.
I find stupid funny
because you’ve got to laugh-
all the value we’ve placed on
this ignorant trash.
I exist in my place
which you’ll never comprehend
because ignorance and stupidity
have surely buttered your bread.

Rachel, Rachel, Rachel

Rachel Dolezal
is a victim of the limits of our diction!
If instead she said she was a man
she would have received loved
never having to use food stamps
she would have been promoted.
You see we put much more stock
in a social construct
then we do biology!
To be black is a real thing
but gender is just a dream.
Wait…

Defining gas lighting

One, two, three,
change the science into cheats
change the dialect we speak
to benefit your needs
to liken ‘me’ to ‘we’
to cover up the seams
of dirty gas lighting.

One, two, three
make a liar outta me-
change a car into a tree,
a moth into a scream!
Tell me a woman is a man
say that I should understand
female is the science
woman is the brand.

One, two, three
keep on gas lighting
keep the fight going
until the truth is green
and the words don’t keep
our minds on things;
like guilt and sleep-
did I move that thing?
did I change the sheets?
what’s my name? What’s the week?

One, two, three, four
mind is mush forever more
the goal of gas lighting has scored
another consumer on the floor
brought to madness
brought to knees
the gas lighters only lead-
not for control
but
insanity
then they drive the victim
to ward b.
