Nice

Nice is a neutral word

signifying nothing
in any meaningful sense
for, like the weather,
it is easily thrown about
when grasping for compliments
but nice is not a negative,
just a potential test
seeking to find one’s true mettle
‘yond all the pomp and jest
so if you find yourself “nice,” be warned
a storm may be coming your way
to identify if you are black or white
or many shades of grey
