A poem about kindness

"Be kind" they said at the beginning of the year,

But how quickly they forgot when the hashtag disappeared.

"Kindness? Hah whats that going to achieve reeeally?

Sounds like a get out of jail free card for lazy activists to me".

Dragged into the limelight, then left there to decay,

2020, the year kindness became a cliché.

It's been a tough little year for that word so profound, 

Lest we forget, it's the simple acts of kindness that make the world go round.
