“An Open Mind At The Monster’s Ball” This work was inspired by a tutor that I’ll refer to as “Mrs C” from my past when I was a student in England. She was verbally unkind and sought to belittle some of the other students at every opportunity. And as far as I was concerned, she mostly treated me as if I was invisible since I would call her out on her behavior. I also took it upon myself to be the other student’s defender and a daily painful and back talking thorn in her side.
Looking back now with the benefit of knowledge and experience, I now Realize that this poor unhappy soul was unwell. However there are many Mrs “C’s” out there rendering life difficult for many who have no option but to accept the behavior. Like Mrs C, they might even tell you that they only want what’s best for XYZ; and praise themselves for their open mindedness as they carry out their monstrous behavior. This one’s for the open minded monsters.
