Cruel To Be Kind Or Kind To Be Cruel
I do not believe in the saying that one to be kind must be cruel
by Francis Duggan
Though such a phrase suits those who abuse their rule
The logic in this I do struggle to find
How can anybody who is cruel be kind?
Perhaps the point here somehow I seem to miss
Like Judas he betrayed Jesus with a kiss
Perhaps for our every thought there has to be fuel
Can one say of him he was kind to be cruel?
Can one say of Judas he knew how to pretend
He was kind to be cruel could one call one like him a friend?
Kind to be cruel or cruel to be kind
In the best of people some deception you'll find
Cruel to be kind make of that what you may
You can look at it in any sort of way.
