Everyone thinks I’m hardened
Everyone thinks I stay in the dark
because I want to, because I like it.
Everyone thinks it’s so fucking funny
the way I swear it’s a mans world..
but you know what’s funny?
My “mans world” thinking
isn’t a hypothesis I keep in my pocket
like a gun and only pull it out
when something doesn’t go my way…
No. Not at all.
And this has never been fiction.
I don’t write fiction.
I don’t write about something
I don’t believe in.
So, I’m not writing fairy tales.
I’m not writing what I think you want
to hear. Maybe I’m writing what you
need to hear. So hear it.
Hear it loud and clear.
If you don’t like it, so what.
Move along…. swiftly.
Just because you have a dick
doesn’t mean it’s okay to write a comment
that could only come from the mouth
of a pig. But I guess having a dick
makes it okay to crack a brainless
comment about “cum”
and call it constructive criticism.
one day… maybe you’ll be a real man.
But not today. Not today.
I find it disturbing
that only women actually have
a set of balls big enough
to take on such disrespect
by replying to a comment from
And the room fell silent.
The room went dark..
the only armor shining
is in the hearts of the ladies.
All the dicks went limp.
