Don't fuck with the poppy

Posted By on Tue, Nov 13, 2018 at 11:52 AM

This is a gentle bitch. To the retail store that thought it appropriate to festoon your window display cases with poppies, surrounding your merchandise: NO! I am sure your heart was in the right place, but a poppy is the symbol of millions of lives lost in war. Its red colour symbolizes the blood spilled by those millions of lives. The poppy should never be used as a prop. Ever.
