“KINDNESS 2” a poem a.k.a.: “Before They Wed, She Smiled and Said: HE’S VERY KIND INDEED.” September 16 2019 (MoonDay)
“A MUTTON FOR PUNISHMENT,” IS THAT WHAT I AM?
AmI too sacri-ficial, just like a lamb?
In this old, rugged world, is it wrong to be kind?
Well, maybe it is, but I still like to find,
People who care how the other folks feel,
But it’s a fine line not to be someone’s “main meal.”
IT’S EASY FOR SOME TO “LEAK OUT” THEIR LIFE,
AND (IT IS) I DO THINK HARDtoBEaGOODhusbandORwife,
And to be a GOOD FRIEND in a con-sistent way;
I know a friend Driedra, whoSOMETIMESdidSay:
“I’veBeenMarriedBefore; would I do it again?
It’s hard to know that; I don’t know many men,
But I’m pretty sure KINDNESS isA critical criteria.”
Then, one day sheMetGates andHad mild deliria,
‘Cause he was a kind and con-siderate dude.
SHE MARRIED HIM, forHe was kind and not rude;
Maybe Gates didNot have a “model-like look,”
ButHeWasAbeautifulSoul, and she was happy she took,
HIM for her husband, and she was so sweet,
A beautiful woman, from her head to her feet.
They married in a nice ceremony, and we all wished them The BEST;
TWO KIND AND SWEET PEOPLE. Still, marriage IS a Test,
Even for The Best of This Old Human Race,
It takes lots of patience, and you tryTo putOn your best face.
Yet, it’s never quite EASY, but I’m sure worth The Try.
