The Elephant In The Room

  Male white privilege (especially older) assumes rights not earned, rewarded, or inalienable. Even a handshake, (seemingly innocuous to most) turns insidious when extended in lasciviousness where it is not warranted, or wanted, but insisted upon.

“Courage Doesn’t Always Roar”

“Courage Doesn’t Always Roar”

https://habitatt.co/collections/all/stattment   This poem is a follow-up to one I sent to Sidney Crosby, Captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins, before the start of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.
