The Thick of It

If ya’ll been watching the internet lately you’ll know that it has turned into entirely piece of shit politics. Trump is doin like at least 4 different awfuls per day, people are writing yells at gay people for no damn reason and then someone’s gotta go and dress as an opposite ghost in parliament just to distract from the fact that their party is a swirling toilet bowl and also racism.

We are not standing on the brink of a war, we are in the middle of it. This war could never be fought with guns and bombs, we all have to use words. Guns only kill people, burning things down will only make this last longer.

Use. Your. Words. Don’t throw them around. A single sentence can kill and a thousand swear words can go unnoticed.

The one advantage we can have over the Trumps and Hansons and all the other mad idiots in dangerous positions is

thinking

before we speak.

 

Speech

 

Do not take this lightly

 

Kids were mowed down by machine guns in thousands for your freedom of speech

 

Kids drowned crawling in mud to stop blameless people rotting in prison camps

 

Kids were forced to watch cities melt in fire to stop industry overtaking reason

 

Kids slit other kids throats, drove over them with tanks, strangled and bit for gay people, for black people, for jews and muslims to have a place next to ours

 

Kids were forced to kill millions for you to speak today

 

So speak wisely

 

Because these kids did not kill for a country

 

They didn’t kill for a flag, or a culture, or for the names of their ancestors

 

They killed and died in droves for a world not to be ruled by fear or hate or evil men

 

To use our freedom to fuel the fires of hate is repugnant

 

To pull away our hands in reckless, selfish fear is to lose a long fought war

 

Be the people kids were slaughtered for
