April 05, 2016


We're Mississippi.
We're proud of our southern
values, magnolia trees,
and hot days.
Now thanks to
Governor Bryant
we have an
oppressive law
to match our
oppressive heat.
Here, you can march to
the beat of your own drum
as long as that beat
harkens back to 1888.
Visit one of our soul
food restaurants,
and swallow your
sense of humanity.
Toast to being the state
with the third highest
teen pregnancy rate.
Come dance your heart
out without the fear of a
gay man or lesbian
showing you up.
Paddle your way through
semantics that justify
Explore nature with
your nuclear family
while explaining to your kids while
being different is bad
and why sex
is scary.
Soak up the fun in our national
chain restaurants and stores
before they pack
up and leave.
Walk amongst mansions
previously inhabited
by slave owners
and now inhabited
by bigots.
Explore our vast
collection of books
before we burn
them all.
And fish in the quiet
solitude of knowing that
you've been left
behind by history.
Visit Mississippi.
We're even worse
than North Carolina.
