Finally, I’m out!
by Andres Diaz, Copyright 2017
Out of all the planets I’ve crash landed on
This one is the worst
People hating each other for the color of their skin
People hating each other based on sexuality
People hating each other because of gender differences
People hating anything or anybody different
People letting their politicians stay in power for decades
People letting their governments control their lives
People letting their governments misuse their tax money
People killing each other in the name of religion
People discriminating against others of different religions
People saying you have to have a religion or else you’re evil
People thinking reality television is real
Popular music that sucks
People whining and complaining and not trying to fix what’s wrong
Finally the rescue ship is landing to take me home
Adios pendejos, I’ll see you in Hell!
