Kindergarten and the Golden Rule

  • by
In kindergarten I learned the golden rule, 
Be kind to everyone, always tell the truth. 
As I grow up the real world reveals, 
Greed, politics and chicanery prevail.
Bad deeds seem to be ever-present, 
Noble acts are known for their absence. 
Should I hold on to the golden rule, 
Even though the teachings don't seem so true?
Kindness can be a powerful light, 
Piercing through the thick of the night. 
Even though bad deeds seem ever-present, 
Kind folks will prevail through perseverance.
So let's be kind, thoughtful and true, 
Make the world better for me and you. 
In a world that seems cold and indifferent, 
Kindergarten lessons can be the difference!
