Poetic Pause I

BULLIES

The background family and home

Brought forth a character of some kind

Many blame all – on background

Bullies come lumbering up

Ready to push the world aside

And find an unsuspecting outlet for their hurt

Whilst rasping on society and it’s parameters

Behind plain view they lie in wait

To stick their grubby hands

on the physically less secure

And so he trained his dog also

Mistreat – with subservience it’s companion

Teaching it to throw a bite

To all and sundry that crossed his path

Like master – like dog

As they touch his barbed wire

The bully mind says:

“Gimme gimme gimme…”

(To try to lift my hurt)

Hurt I will never lay bare

Wounds I will cling to

And make you all pay for

Abuse expanding to domestic violence

And into prison to bully again

The bully boys, the bully breed

Self-serving is their holy grail

But their petrol will run out

And age will wrinkle their fervour

Still they masticate all intruders

Who dare to live in the same world as they

Their fate is guaranteed unless

They find the Damascus road

All on the receiving end of their ‘bully-dom’

First stagger in unbelief

But steady themselves to agree

That life’s road lies in the opposite way

To the bully boys decree

Don’t let these hardened choosers

Take pleasure in your pain

Rise to live another day

Determined to remain

A decent person by antithesis

As open-hearted you be to embrace

Your fellow man in normality
