I offered to feed the alligator
and my pay back was losing my hand
I nursed a snake that bit me
and when it was healthy it bit me again
I set the bees free from their cages
So they stung me a thousand times
Now I’m hand less and stung and bitten
Kindness repaid is the harshest of crimes…
No one comes to tend a nurse’s wounds
No one cares that a priest is in pain
Being nice to predators makes you their victim
So I use beer to clean the wounds in my brain…
