Thank you so much for taking time to read my poem. I was so angry when I wrote it. It was either write, leave, or knock the ever-lovin’ snot out of him.

There are still too many just like him. I want to think it’s mostly generational, but I see younger men acting the same. Kings of their castles deserve to be overthrown.

It’s sort of expected of old farts, but they shouldn’t get a pass and be allowed to infect their sons and grandsons with the same hunter-provider bullshit.

Thanks again.
