Everytime I hear

someone is –

nice, kind, friendly, with

practically no flaws,

I take it with a grain of salt.

Think to myself: hey!

Thanks for stopping by,

you came prepared with your

umbrella, a rain jacket,

some rubber boots and

an earnest face.

You know what to say,

what to do, I am sold. So are they.

But as soon as I look away –

we hear whispers wisely crafted,

to put barriers, a cage around.

To demolish the same ruin

the nice, kind, friendly you

earlier came to visit.
