YOU WERE A DICK (YOU HAVE BROKEN THE GOLDEN RULE) (day three)

This is a poem in connection to a little poem I wrote back in February, a response to breaking the golden rule.

It’s pretty simple, but people keep breaking it every day.

 

YOU WERE A DICK (YOU HAVE BROKEN THE GOLDEN RULE)

 

what’s wrong wit chou

she would say

(because god is a sassy woman

in my mind

 

probably from the south too

her presence is more alive the further you travel)

 

i know i gave you freewill and all

but shit

it ain’t that hard

 

YOU HAD ONE THING TO DO

AND YOU FUCKED IT UP

 

i’m sorry

i don’t mean to be all fire and brimstone

 

i do have a sense of humor

(i created you

after all)

 

but in all seriousness

all i have ever wanted from anyone

is for them to be a good person

and truly mean it

 

not for any reason beyond that it is the right thing to do

without any expectation of reward

 

heaven

was created to keep people in line

(you see how well it’s worked so far)

 

be kind to others

and the satisfaction will greatly outweigh any physical thing you can obtain
