Prompted by a Quote

As an answer to the all too common vitriol and truculence I seek to anesthetize such behavior with the gifts God gave me From a mouth that can produce venom flows milk and honey From a base and vile self seeking "quid pro quo" Comes the blessed parry of a forgiving heart When people ask why I don't act as they would The only response I could ever give is... "Because God didn't give me what I deserve."
