SOMETIMES ITS MY JOB

  1. To shut the fuck up.
  2. Like when someone has an opinion that makes me uncomfortable
  3. My job then is to be quiet and listen and learn.
  4. But when someone
  5. Opens fire
  6. On people
  7. Because of hate, or extremism, or terrorism, or violence, or loud music, or race, or ethnicity, or sexual orientation
  8. And kills them
  9. And hurts them
  10. And creates absences in families
  11. And in society
  12. And scars them
  13. And scares them
  14. And takes their sanity
  15. And mental stability
  16. It is then my job to scream as loudly as I can
  17. Because I can and should make everyone listen.
