My grandfather used to say to us kids “if you can’t say something nice don’t say it at all “ amongst lots of other sayings that were instilled also by my parents other sayings
We grew up to respect elders especially since we lived with an ill grandfather with parents
Loved your haiku

I clicked on the title, because in a program I recently watched it was mentioned that certain people wirh "extremely concrete thinking" cannot go beyond the literal meaning of the phrase"One that lives in a glass house shouldn't throw stones." Maybe that's why they insist on throwing stones - after all, they literally don't live in a glass house.

Oh I like it Chris. Dynamite packed in a few lines. There's a lot of venom out there. Kindness a better serum

Indeed they do, and there are many of them. Unfortunately, they have the internet as a slingshot.
