The Bad Influence

An Ode to the Dead Lovers

It is a eulogy, her life

She sings it

for her lovers who have left her

Her thoughts of them intertwine like aged dreadlocks - not cared for, rebellious & hurtful

She sings them one at a time

She is careful for she has no elixir for jealousy



We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
