Kindness will kill you

Kindness will kill you quicker than anything in this world

quicker than enmity

quicker than runny snot noses

quicker than cats

quicker than an itch that can't be won 

Kindness kills

I know,

there was a man,

a kind man,

a too kind man,

who stood in line

in front of me,

who offered 

his place in line

and got behind

me, and offered

his place in line

to the child behind 

him and the man

behind him

and the woman

behind the man

behind the child

behind me. 


and we all killed him,
