it’s not like its the most beautiful place in the world
that distinction goes to isla vista
but it was a place i instantly felt at home in.
umpqua is quiet and green with curvy roads and trees trees trees
a river literally runs through it
its called the umpqua river.
it’s cold and surprisingly deep and swift, you should watch yourself
trees fall down and deers dart around and wild turkeys stumble as the fog rolls in
a tv personality you know was sent to portland earlier today to cover the historic news
that recreational marijuana became the law of the land in oregon today but he was suddenly instructed to head to roseburg because an asswipe went into the umpqua community college and killed a bunch of people.
i believe judgement day includes a part where the good lord says
did you trust that i was going to take care of you and were calm and happy
or did you act as if i didnt ever exist and you lived in fear the whole time?
this country is too old to be so invested in little time bombs that blow
far too often.
and our souls are too pure to be hiding behind destruction
while claiming that we are children of god.
if i was congress id make a law that said only women can have guns
and if a man is caught with one, he goes to jail for 33 years.
men have proven they cannot responsibly deal with guns,
so men should man up and hand their weapons over to those who have proven they can.
