Lots of bad things happen. Human kindness is dead. Or is it?

I woke up to the sound
of God's garage door rumbling,
and outside, a battalion of
machine guns firing icy, cold droplets,
that thudded into my window.

Human kindness has died, but

On the way to Saturday shops,
Rivers rage peacefully down roads,
Where the streams had broke
their banks and let their tears weep
and seep out as they cried.

Human kindness has died, but

A clash of metal on metal
Two cars,
their brakes exhausted by rain,
slid their worlds into each other.
So caused brother to brother
Patting his back, shaking his hand.

In a blink of the eye
Two cars become Six
And wisdom ladies in skirts
take care of the shaken girl,
hold her tight and hug her
Saying, "Come now, it's alright"

Human kindness has died, but

In the old local shop,
He lets me go in front of him,
So we make amiable chit-chat
of the lulls and laughs of life,
and other such subjects of strife
Whilst the queue goes down

Human kindness has died, but

As we take, we must give
So, I hold open the door
to a mother to poor to live
with a pushchair and kids
As she says, "Thankyou, sir,
Thankyou"

Now,
Whoever said Human Kindness had died?
