Be Kind

Telling someone to "be kind"

What a stupid thing to do

We've been taught it since day one

Only an idiot would not know

It's something first graders learn 

When they argue in the schoolyard

Why bother when there are better things to be than "kind"

Like "Famous" and "Intelligent"

"Kindness" is for losers who want to be used

We don't need to hear about being "greedy" and "bitchy”

Why bother to be "kind" enough to think about how we affect others?

Why bother to be "kind" enough to not take advantage of others?

Why bother to be "kind" enough to take care of others?

Why bother to try to be "kind" and understanding?

Why should we ever stop

Dissing

Judging

And Overlooking?

They seem to get more praise

Why go by the rules of kindness?

Take a look at our society

Our politcians

Our criminals 

Our murders, shooters,  abusers

We don't need "kindness"

Things are going just fine...
