This is just how FUCKED UP our society is!

Snapshot_20150218_1Ben Levin, former deputy education minister (Ontario) who has been charged with 7 child pornography related offences has agreed to a deal that will see him plead guilty to three child porn charges. He is asking for support in the form of letters of reference which he hopes will land him a lighter sentence. This is sickening! What is worst is he will probably receive more support in his bid to stay out of jail than I will in my bid to be the next Poet Laureate of Toronto. This sick bastard has the nerve to ask for support for his sinister behaviour. I’m asking for support for an honest endeavor. Those who watch child pornography create the demand that causes irreparable harm to our children. As far as I’m concerned viewing child pornography is the same as engaging in pedophilia!

On The Eve of World War III

The evidence is there, it’s plain to see
We’re teetering on the precipice of World War Three
Just take a moment or two to pause and think
And you will see we’re dangling over the brink
You will see we’re clinging to the thinnest thread
And we won’t be satisfied until everyone’s dead
Until corpses are ground into the ground by jackboots
How in Hell did we ever stray so far from our roots?
What of love, acceptance, decency and respect?
Shouldn’t those be the values of the ones we elect?
When did we change the dialogue and let hate grow stronger?
When did we hand the reins over to the War Monger?
When right is left and right is wrong
I ask, why can’t we all get along?
