Compassion is Corrupt – Written Monday 23rd September 2019 (Aged 44)

Compassion is Corrupt

should i write down in words –
how you treat people?
or made me feel…
should i pick a frame
because these feelings are my claim
when did –
being an awful human being
feel like a valid plan
when someone did not take your hands?
when did –
throwing weight around
seem so absolutely sound
should i write down in words –
what an awful human being you are
is that my interpretation?
is disdain for others a deadly fascination
what is the point –
of pointing out another human being –
who over reacts –
to their own personality defects
shows little or no respect
whose compassion is corrupt
and in need of a hug
when did this style develop
when did you become such a verbal thing?
