rabid bunny

i am compassion
fatigued
i am pissed off
i am tired
of putting
other people’s feelings
first
like a spark
to a cloud
of gas
my anger
flares
& i go from
gentle
bunny
to gnashing teeth
&
terrible
claws.

i lost it on a librarian the other day. i sincerely believe (through common sense, instinct, & research) that wearing a mask is bad for my health…bad for my children’s health…bad for everyone who does not have a compromised immune system. the environment of microbes around us are meant to be breathed in & out–not our own carbon dioxide….
i could go on, but i won’t because if you don’t already agree with me, i’m probably not going to convince you.

i live in a small town in a rural area of wisconsin–but the town is teeming with the liberal attitude of mask up & don’t ask questions.
i ask questions.

& when a librarian, 20 feet away, in an empty room, tells me to mask up as i pop in to grab my library holds, i get pissy.
i’m tired of trying to make these people feel safe (because it is just an illusion–they aren’t any more safe for their covered faces–not really) while doing something to my own body that i know is not good for it. not being able to breathe is just not good for my body. not getting my dose of microbes is not good for me….

so why do they believe their health more important than mine?

ps…happy new year!! suck it, 2020!

  1. Oh don’t get me started, emje!! Fortunately I don’t live in a liberal area… though there is a very liberal town 45 minutes away and I refuse to go there because of it. You would think it was communist China there. Last I checked, this was still the land of the free, these United States of America. I haven’t put a mask on, nor will I.

      1. i can most days…but some days i just want to shake them. so much harm is done by blindly following orders–of course, there is probably nothing i can do to change their minds. & then i get sad…. thank you for letting me know i’m not alone!! xo

      2. You gotta remember most of the people are indoctrinated from a very early age to believe that the government knows what’s best for you and that the media (aka journalism) seeks to tell the truth. Of course, neither of these beliefs are accurate. But lack of critical thinking destroys a person’s ability to recognize it.
