Choice Things to Say

Choice things to say

I spoke to a random stranger
And I tried but failed to find
A single nice thing to say;
I was in such a bind.

Silence was an option
I could not attempt.
Out of Kindness and the other,
Easier was Contempt.

So I had to settle and I did
For choice things to say.
I snubbed and got snubbed,
Quibbling took our day.

It isn't that I really care
Or that I like to fight ,
Or spreading aimless grief
Causes me any delight. 

Rather, I got no love to share,
Yet I want to be a Christian -
All I got is bitterness - 
I only spread my little fortune.
