Good Men are Hard to Find

They say good men are to find, and that may be true, but it’s not cause they aren’t around. Problem is they don’t last long. Nowadays they’ll set a good man down in front of the TV and tell him two contradictory versions of the same story, both claiming to be true, and in this way they abuse his trust in the goodness of others, they betray him over and over again, appealing always to his goodness, until to stay sane and true to himself he’s got to choose one side or the other, and that choice dictates how he listens to every story from then on, and from there he builds the kind of opinions, and then behaviors, he would else-wise find shameful, just to survive in the face of all this.
