Acts Unkind

Through my lifetime I have seen
too many things that are obscene
injustice hate all things unkind
the more I live the more I find
for all these things there is no use
they are all brothers to abuse
the deviation from what's right
with countless victims of this plight
in endless ways they're torn apart
by wrong that's in anothers heart
the twisted deeds that plague mankind
that damage body heart and mind
the slaughter of the innocent
this is where my anger's spent
judging mocking vicious lies
evil acts that compromise
things no one should ever see
the ugliness of cruelty
designed to cause anothers pain
these are the things that I disdain

Inspired by Michael Degenhardt's Whats Got Your Goat contest

    Congratulations, Robin, on your win in Michael Degenhardt's "What's Got Your Goat" contest. Rarely do the ills of the world ring so true or conversational! Rhymes and meter are all spot on. Warm regards, John.

    Awesome poem, Robin. "Vicious lies, evil acts that compromise" and cause pain to others get my goat, too. Pointless attempts to hurt people are not only despicable, they create bad karma. It's really nice to see you active on the site again. Writing provides a great release. I have a friend named Robin who told me that not long ago. Love, Carolyn
