Good Credit/Bad Credit

if we help clean the beach

we deserve credit

if we help generate trash that winds up in the ocean

we deserve credit

 

if we drive an electric car

we deserve credit

if our electricity comes from oil or coal

we deserve credit.

 

if we have a good credit rating

we deserve credit

if our stocks include private prisons and weapons manufacturers

we deserve credit

 

if we give money to an organization that helps victims of war

we deserve credit

if we give money to a government that creates victims of war

we deserve credit

 

if we resist paying taxes and instead donate every penny of it to programs of social uplift

we deserve credit

if we have a bad credit rating

we deserve credit

About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
