Bad

by Loolwa Khazzoom • June 11, 2016 • Songs

It is easier to fuck
Than to feel
To destroy
Than to create
To take drugs
Than to dance in the street
To get wasted
Than to speak your mind
You are bad
In the socially sanctioned ways
That make you feel good
Instead of breaking rank altogether
And following your soul
To uncharted territories
Where people will call you
Mad
Which is infinitely more frightening
Than people calling you
Bad
