To All Mankind

Speak kind words
to mankind,
and the unkind
will attack you.

Speak common sense
using any of your senses,
and you will be attacked by
the senseless.

Speak truth,
and you will be attacked by
the untruthful.

Speak about
absolutely nothing,
and absolutely nothing
will speak back,
but then nothing at all
will ever change.
