An Open Letter For The Save -The -World Type People by Melanie Browne

the world does not need you
to save it,
the world does not need
you to swaddle
it in a blanket
and feed it
mashed potatoes
the world does not
know your name
it does,
however,
know
Kim Kardashians name
believe it or not,
Kim Kardashian
has more of a shot
at saving the world-
she can swaddle the
world
and feed it
mashed potatoes
but I think
she is busy
going to
a fancy restaurant
they don’t serve mashed potatoes
they serve “baby potatoes confit”
or “baby potatoes tartare”
in conclusion
save the world by eating at
fancy restaurants
& hound celebrities
for their autographs
but as for
saving the world
don’t be a shmuck
