Distractionz: Don’t Just Post, Organize!

 

Distractionz art

Crazy times all around us; ICE making rounds

Trump an ‘em are clownin’ us; freedom’s nowhere to be found

Bills are fuckin’ drownin’ us, and we’re mass extinction bound.

This situation’s scary; can’t afford to play no games

Wasting energy on Facebook postings – really fucking lame.

Gotta organize because there’s no other fucking way

They pollutin’ skies and drilling oceans every fucking day.
