“Nice”, a word


I wonder how many know

That the word “nice”, is not so

Look it up

Read the etymology

I wonder when society decide

That “nice” was positive

Although by now,

In the 21st century, it seems

bland and blah,

no clear meaning at all.

Thesaurus to the rescue

Less meanings to confuse.

“Pleasant”, “polite”,  “seems all right”

Are better go-to adjectives instead.
