The Bad Influence

We Take the Night Streets

Do we have to break things to get your attention?

street protest at night with smoke and fire

In the night streets
reminding a nation —
Marching sisters n brothers
side by side, 6 feet apart,
masked and dangerous —
or so they say. They being
the police and their henchmen,
sparing for a fight,
marching peacefully 1 minute,
& next, they’ve formed tight lines
pushing us back… we’re waving our permits…



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.
