Stop The Stigma

by JPilcher

Stop judging what you know nothing about.

That crap you speak, does it just fall out?

Oh I know you're right, it must be just me,

Perfect little you, how could I even compete?

The problem isn't actually me you see.

Hard to believe? That it is you, not me?

Explain what makes you better than me!

Stop believing everything you hear,

That has never gotten anyone anywhere.

It's the simplest thing that one can do,

Go out and try to read a book or two.

Maybe then you might just understand,

And pray you didn't have to learn first hand.
