My daughter is boycotting

companies that lie to her

or steal from her.

On her hit list so far:

Comcast, Apple, Hertz, Commerce

Insurance, Walmart, Sorrento’s Pizza

and a local gas station.

I warned her

that she’s going to run out

of stores and services

by the time she’s my age.

Fuck ‘em, she said.
