cannot deal with the things i'm reading in the news lately. i need it to stop (slams both hands over her ears and hums "stinkfist" by tool)...


(DISCLAIMER: for sweet souls like my good friend VEE, please note that i'm mostly just angry at people who have kids for the sake of having them to make themselves happier. they seem to forget that it take A LOT to raise a child. it takes more than just WANTING them. you have a lot at stake and i feel like people forget that. some people seem to just want kids for the sake of wanting kids and that's sad b/c the kids suffer. there are too many examples but 1) the baby grace story from texas 2) the octopulet mother who has no job, no house of her own, and no partner/spouse to help her. it's pure selfishness. i am NOT putting down decent, hard-working parents. i'm fed up with the people who have no good reason for bringing kids into this world. end of disclaimer)

breeders

that's what's going on

people filling themselves

their unholy lives

plugging the holes with

smaller versions of themselves

work was bad again?

that's fine, fuck each other

make another

that'll help.

didn't get that raise?

just add another mouth to feed

makes sense to me.

when it used to be shopping

and we couldn't keep ourselves from

those goddam worthless shoes on sale

at least the shoes didn't have souls

just soles

to forget about

in the back of your closet.

and when coke was the coolest thing

(not the kind for drinking)

at least everyone was too high

to bring more nonesense into this world

and why bring another person here?

what good can come of it? 

even when they grow up to cure

cancer

the problem is most grow up

and procreate

and create more breeders

who are living at home with their mothers

at age 35

with no jobs, no real futures to speak of

just a lot of love for their little ones

because, as well all know

all you need is love.

don't instill a work ethic

forget about teaching them

anything

you'll get by just fine

all you need is love...
