Having tattoos and piercings is not unprofessional.
What’s unprofessional is turning down an aspiring employee due to superficial reasons and not their skill level or experience.
I differ. Would never trust a school teacher with the swastika tattooed on his forehead with my child for e second. Whatever his/her experience or skill. Neither would I leave my car with such a mechanic.
“THESE MONSTERS THAT WE PREACH”
These monsters that we preach Disguised as advertisements and fun TV shows
They lead to this hate that we have now reached
Guns passing faster than silly love notes during boring track meets
A generation fast fading in neighborhoods unseen
Their backs turned to themselves and their dying consciences
Hate is glorified in the most lavish of ways
Who can curse faster and better?
Be the bully to that freckled fatty with redhead
Love now larger and farther than a once four letter word
Still a heavy burden on the hearts of those who seek to live it
Monsters are disguised in the most beautiful of ways
Thousand dollar purses on Robertson Boulevard
Katherine’s growing baby bump the obsession of many dawns
Youths in disdain adults in disarray Corrupt economies on the rise as the chocolate cookies crumble
Grease stained fingers pointed in diverse directions
Yet those monsters we continue to preach have nothing to do
With the hate that we have now reached”
