The Bad Influence

Friend or Foe?

Sometimes it’s hard to know.

Friend or foe the expression goes
as if you’re one or the other.
I get a kick out of having a sidekick
if I can make that stick, and not get sick.

I need a retort for a cohort
who’s impatient with the blatant
terms of endearment used
in the procurement of love.



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.
