Acts Unkind

Written by: Robin L. Gass

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
