The Bad Influence

An Ode

Life with Mary Jane

was never easy but now it's breezy because I am done make-believing.

at first, i never took her out in public
dressed her up in shame
hid her like a bad name
or the jezebel your mom
didn’t want you to entertain



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.
