That’s Nice

“They’re lovely people”; they aren’t

“They’re so clever”; they weren’t

Undeserved pedestals constructed by role models naive

Voiced by those witnessing self-righteous, authentic or not.


Acquiesce to the ‘lovely people’

Cow tow to the supposedly ‘erudite’

Mantra of insecurity; foolhardy bastion of subservience

Consequence, imbecilic compliance to those unworthy.


“Blessed are the peacemakers.”

Almighty’s adoption promised as thy bounty

Natheless, are fomenter’s made accountable?

Is damnation resultant from dissenter’s disregard?


Well meaning mentors; misguidedly yielding

Acceptance of toxic souls; loyal to the dysfunctional

Embrace your own existential pulchritude

Thou is more deserved of accolades; accept thy acclaim worthy.

Thats Nice
