The Bad Influence

It’s The Little Things

We live in an atmosphere

consumed with fear and worry.

We’re all bent out of shape,

not knowing what waits tomorrow.

Still, as I entered the Bagel World,

waiting to pick up my Saturday lunch,

I heard Prince play overhead.




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.
