Nice

Fuck 'nice'.

The word I've hated a full score of years

Finding it a shoddy bow out of real consideration

Nice means you didn't pay attention.

Nice is what they say of the guys who message hate

To women who are daring to exist

Nice is what they say of girls who accept attacks against them,

Who are quiet in the face of evil words

And don't run from deplorable deeds

And end up dead.

And then it turns to their murderers

When did 'nice' become an aspiration?

Why not KIND or TRUE or BRAVE?

Nice is not a personality trait.

Nice is less than what I value.

Nice is nothing at all.
