Portrait of the Artist as a Young Adult–1993

I don’t read the papers (except for ‘Ann Landers’).  I refuse to watch CNN.  I had friends who fought a war just to prove a point. (real macho)

I see healthy people starving in the streets on my way to work.  I see teenagers with babies they don’t want, selling drugs they don’t need.

Lots of people like me, want me, admire me even, but I’m alone when all around me relationships fall apart due to stupidity and selfishness.  I’m kind and harmless, sometimes going out of my way to help people, and those people call me BITCH the one time I say ‘no’.

You don’t have to print it or televise it to tell ME there’s something wrong in the world.
