We shout our rightness. No one cares.
Everyone is shouting.
Stands are platforms to shout from.
We taught children to take stands
Like taking vitamins –
Like it’s good and necessary.
We should have taught them
to listen and understand.
Also, vitamins cause liver damage1.
1I hugely oversimplified for the sake of a 44 word poem. Read the study in full and talk to your doctor. Do not take medical advice from a random poet-blogger.
