Sometimes I can’t help but lose faith in our species when I scroll through the comments section of a youtube video. The ignorance, and the hate, and fear I see makes me think we’re still a bunch of wild animals. Language is our greatest invention, and we use it for all the wrong reasons too many times. Here’s a poem I wrote in response to all the hate. Feel free to cut and paste it to the comments section of a youtube video whenever people start acting like idiots.
The comments are loose like rabid beasts. Half blind,
gut shot, bleeding out, crashing mindlessly
toward anything that moves.
