A Prayer for Twitter

Quick Taking
Justice Making

A Prayer for the Communities
Built across the Alphabet
Semi-Anonymous Honesty

A Prayer for the Screw Around
And Finding Out
The Trying to be Cultural relevant
And yet still Yourself

Here’s a Prayer for Doom Scrolling
Joy Seeking
& Screaming into the Void
That is Twitter

Here’s a Prayer for all Trolls on
Twitter, Because I’m supposed to Prayer for my enemies
May your teeth ache, and May those who hate humanity
and those who harm children never sleep through the night

Here’s a Prayer for Twitter
Pure Humanity: Bringing the Best and Worst of Humanity
Rambling Dictator, Hating Nazi
Compassionate Crowdfunding, Diverse Perspectives, Unknown Depths of Learning

Here’s a Prayer for Twitter
Here’s a Prayer for Humans
May we take the good and leave the bad

And may capitalism and millionaires
Princes and powers and principalities perish
and love and compassion and food and medicine and housing
and creativity and arts endure forever

"Publisher after publisher turned down A Wrinkle in Time," L'Engle wrote, "because it deals overtly with the problem of evil, and it was too difficult for children, and was it a children's or an adult's book, anyhow?" The next year it won the prestigious John Newbery Medal. Tolkien states in the foreword to The Lord of the Rings that he disliked allegories and that the story was not one.[66] Instead he preferred what he termed "applicability", the freedom of the reader to interpret the work in the light of his or her own life and times.
