The Bad Influence

For This Pandemic

A poem

It’s no longer safe

to walk around our


embracing others

Though it’s absolutely fine

to wave a hand

in greeting,

show love and kindness

and above all,



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.
