What To Do When Your Boyfriend’s Asshole Best Friend Says, “Hey, Never Trust Anything That Bleeds For Seven Days And Doesn’t Die,
OR The Only Poem I’ll Ever Write About Periods.
Don’t excuse him because he’s had
at least three lite beers
and is sweating through his black button down
that his mom or exgirlfriend
probably bought him.
Don’t excuse him because he’s been turned down
by the last six girls he went on dates with
after meeting them on tindr
with a picture that’s seven years old
Don’t excuse him because
he’s usually such a nice guy
because you don’t want to be a bitch
because you don’t want to cause a scene
because when you were seventeen
your sister told you
no one likes an angry feminist
Let me explain something to you.
Every goddamn motherfucking month since I was eleven,
a part of me
tore itself to shreds
ripped itself apart inside me
and then remade itself.
So yes, I bleed for seven days
and I don’t die
You know what else can do that?
Things of legend.
Fuck, I can even
So I say, never trust anything that can’t
bleed for seven days and not die.
You know what that makes it?
So let’s see, hon,
What you’re made of.
If you can bleed for seven days
and not die.
Rip out his jugular with your teeth.
And when he bleeds for seven seconds
spit on his corpse and say,
I thought not.

i demanded to know where she got it from but she said she couldn’t remember
how can you not remember where you got such a majestic piece of furniture?
maybe she was just trying to keep it to herself

Kenya's crop insurance wins international innovation award →
Kenya’s Kilimo Salama, Kiswahili for ‘safe farming’ beat over 200 entries to win the prestigious Financial Times’ award for Technology in Sustainable Finance, recognizing their groundbreaking work to provide smallholder farmers with access to insurance cover.
The FT’s Award for Technology in Sustainable Finance recognises organizations and initiatives that address scarcity in essential goods and services and that demonstrate leadership and innovation in addressing environmental, social and corporate governance issues in business.
The insurance programme, which is a partnership between the Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture and UAP Insurance, is an innovative, pay-as-you-plant, index-based, micro-insurance program for smallholder farmers in Kenya and the first in the world to use a mobile network-based platform and on-the-ground solar weather stations to provide smallholder farmers with low-cost insurance policies.
“When it comes to drought, most farmers have no choice but to simply pray for rain. And if the rains don’t come, the crops don’t grow. At a time of global change, Kilimo Salama is giving farmers more options so they can meet these challenges and prosper,” said Marco Ferroni, Executive Director of the Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture.
Kilimo Salama has seen an eventful second year marked by severe weather and explosive farmer demand for insurance to mitigate current and future weather risk. The programme has just completed one of the largest index insurance payouts ever experienced on the continent and has now insured nearly 64,000 farmers for the next season.
And now, to market and sell this.
