I'm Not Nice!

I'm so agreeable, friendly and polite -

In the manner of 'Sergeant Wilson'.

An old-time, affable English type,

Who greeted every situation with,

'That's so awfully nice!'

Yet Wilson got up his captain's nose.

Who found that superior, old-boy, pose

To be so awfully condescending.

That word, 'nice' -


Supercilious, hypocritical;

The lazy person's adjective,

Too vague and too bland.

So I assert that, in spite of my mien,

An amiable manner can contain great spleen.

'English insincerity', seldom says what it means -


I'm not NICE!
