The nice people

nice people do not to say

fuck you

because

after all

they are

good people

nice people

people like us

folks who have

y’know standards

& they will not tell you

fuck you

but they will do it

a word in the ear of

those quiet whispers about

horrible things said

with the cowardly

‘but don’t quote me’

a letter to the right person

‘a family friend put me in touch with’

a stinging email about

y’know standards

respectability

community ethics

& how people like that

who say such mean words

are not like us

oh no

not all
