Unkindness

We are told kindness kills

In the depths of war

In the tumult of regimes fallen

In the ash of split minds, bodies

We are told kindness is how we should be

In archaic, sterile Christianity

In twisted public opinion

In news fake, confusing, unknown

We are told who is evil

From corporations spitting acid in our water

From politicians wrapped blind with their own thoughts

From tv, where we forget about the rest of the world

We are told who is evil

But it is never us

We are told who is kind

And it is always us

And the voice of the world drips down the drain

Quiet to nothing, but those unkind
