Pushing Buttons: C. Fay Shlanda

To plunge
Knocking over
A strike towards
Thrusting ideas upon
As physical buttons are phased out
Emotional buttons are pressed into service

Anger is bulldozed and left overexposed
While shame gets shouldered into the corner
Sadness is propelled into the front lines
As happiness gets swept under the rug
Illness is prodded into the wide open
And wellness gets nudged into the sidelines

To jostle
Bump into
An elbow to
Shoving opinions upon
Some buttons are easier to activate
Other buttons should never be pushed
