This little girl's diary entry is the most punk rock thing you've seen in your life.

You should hear this butterfly's thoughts on the corporatization of the music industry.

Indie comic artist Taylor-Ruth Baldwin posted this image to her Tumblr page along with the simple description that it is an "actual diary entry from when i was in 5th grade oh my god." Is it genuine? I don't know. It almost seems too perfect to be credible.

However, even if you look at it as a fictive childhood artifact, it seems to so thoroughly encapsulate that moment when we're struggling to deal with the rising well of acrimony we feel roiling in the pits of our stomachs, but we haven't quite given up doodling butterflies in turquoise marker on our diary pages. This is the fertile ground on which the seeds of punk find their purchase.

Plus, "...if the Dead Kennedies [sic] do not like the man, so don't I," are definitely words to live by.
