a convenient death

it isn’t
difficult
being a
good person

it can be
inconvenient

and that is
more than enough
to deter most
from bothering

i prefer the
company of
stray cats
old drunks
and children

they are
exactly
as they seem
living life
unapologetic
to perception

i astutely
avoid a
convenient death
asinine in my own
stubborn desire
to be a good person
despite
a mountain
of evidence
to the contrary
