Why is it when we’re younger we
Have certain words drilled out?
Out of our minds, our lexicon
To never hear them shout
Some words that from our brain are banned
Or else they’ll be our vice
Such words that have done nothing wrong
Like, for example, nice!
I mean, whatever did that word
Just do to gravitate
All teachers on the planet to
Say “No! The word I hate!”
This word that sums up perfectly
When something is just fine!
Despite the fact that there might be
More synonyms refined
For simple “nice” has been bullied
Rejected some might say
But how else can we then just wish
Each one a real ‘nice’ day!
