Not enough of the male species writes poetry in tumblr

dougieplaysbanjo:

so c’mon guys, put away your penis for a minute and write something poetic and profound, or funny, or serious

a poem about life, love, and freedom of thought, let your fingers talk on the keys

a poem about boobies even…if you want

I wish I hadn’t said that now

;)

Boobies
Can’t say it without
remembering
a younger time,
a younger Dad.
'How do you scare a hive?'
'Yell “Boo-Bees!!'”
enthusiasm over mirth
he’s not him
life now is hard, bitter, cruel.
years are stones piled on
I will become
what he is not
supportive
whimsical
crazy
old
bastard

Letter from Upton Sinclair to President Theodore Roosevelt

Item From: Records of the Office of the Secretary of Agriculture. (1889-)

Upton Sinclair was famous for his book entitled “The Jungle” which brought attention to the unsanitary and inhumane activities of the meat-packing industry. In this letter to President Roosevelt, Sinclair showed his support for federal inspectors going undercover as workingmen to expose corruption from within these factories.

"

I believe that this instinct to perpetuate useless work is, at bottom, simply fear of the mob. The mob (the thought runs) are such low animals that they would be dangerous if they had leisure; it is safer to keep them too busy to think. A rich man who happens to be intellectually honest, if he is questioned about the improvement of working conditions, usually says something like this:

‘We know that poverty is unpleasant; in fact, since it is so remote, we rather enjoy harrowing ourselves with the thought of its unpleasantness. But don’t expect us to do anything about it. We are sorry for you lower classes, just as we are sorry for a, cat with the mange, but we will fight like devils against any improvement of your condition. We feel that you are much safer as you are. The present state of affairs suits us, and we are not going to take the risk of setting you free, even by an extra hour a day. So, dear brothers, since evidently you must sweat to pay for our trips to Italy, sweat and be damned to you.’

I’ve been seeing this ‘weheartit’ tag

And it confuses me. What sound does a boob make and how loud?

I am… curious.
