Some kids get to grow
Up safe and warm and fed while
Some kids don’t grow up
If you saw the person get killed today, or witnessed violence, or suffered violence, chances are high you have been traumatized.
You may not make the best choices in this state. You may need to do your self care. You may need to step back.
Damage from this sort of shit is real but it doesn’t have to totally rule you. Your mental health is important. Slow down to take care.
If you feel totally frantic, urgent, adamant, you may really be the one who needs a time out for self care. Ask for help if you need it.
Coming to town. Effective
The movement against the right
Can we be calm or?
Threat, the issue, the problem
Then act to combat.
Increases delusions and
Suffering. It’s wack.
Maybe our side would
Do better to build our own
Or only active against
Is not so useful
It is good to be
Outraged, but that fear may not
Be the best start place.
Find some love within
And act from there to build up
And speak out as well
Hello! I am Mo Karnage. I am an herbalist, parent, avid reader, author, carpenter, environmentalist, social justice advocate, vegan, and sober person.
Here you will find my daily haiku, weekly unsolicited advice column “Yall Are Petty”, political essays, herbalist musings and tips, and more. There are also links to my instagram and other social media pages. Most of my content here will be in the form of writing.
I am always happy for opportunities to be published or paid for my writing. I am also interested in opportunities to present at events or conferences on subjects relating to: radical history, anarchism, know your rights, sustainability and old windows, food not bombs, women in construction, herbalism and ptsd, how to write prisoners, grassroots organizing, plant walks, etc.
My construction business is Karnage Creations LLC and we do restoration of historic windows. Find us online at Richmond Window Repair and get in touch if you need windows repaired or restored.
Another of my enterprises is The Heathen Homestead LLC, our herbal farm in Beaverdam, VA. You can see what products we are selling (all kinds of herbal goodies) and what markets we will be at here: The Heathen Homestead. Contact me for scheduling herbal consultations.
