Poems Against Humanity

Between snow storms and local football franchises winning Super Bowls, it's been an off week for my writing schedule. But I still have new poetry to share with you, all of it inspired by my recently purchased Cards Against Humanity deck. CAH is described by its creators as "a party game for horrible people," and I think you'll find the dark humor in this piece to reflect that.


Poem Against Humanity II

Instead of coal, Santa, now
give the bad children
heteronormativity.
Make them understand
the sanctity of a tab
and a slot.

Remind them that marriage can be
nothing but a cheap cardboard toy
you tear out of the box
of your cereal
or your Happy
Meal.
