Bully

Bully

A Poem by Andy East

That boy you called 'Gay boy Gay !'
In the school lunch hall today
We'll done. You helped him decide
He went home. Committed suicide

That girl you screamed '****' to
Was it something you had to do
She won't go out.  She's a virgin
And Now she's started drinking gin

That boy you said was a waste of space
After school he goes home double pace
Gets ready. Goes to work til late tonight
So that his family can eat right

That girl you pushed to the ground
Hit the floor, but didn't make a sound
Did you expect her to blow a fuse
She goes home to her father's abuse

The old man selling flags in the park
You make fun of his facial scars
He's a better man than you'll ever be
He got them fighting for his country

Today you decide to make fun of me
I think it's time for you to see
I'm sat in class, I can't stop crying
Because my mum is at home dying

The one thing you really need to see
Is that you're not big, clever or funny
What made you this way ? C'mon tell me
There's nothing good about being a bully

excellent write! very descriptive...third stanza...I can relate all to well.
kudos to you for penning this...this is a topic that isn't brought up
enough and has become more and more prevalent on the internet as well...
especially on here...most insulting rants towards others get the most rave
reviews. truly sick..but that's society for .you!

just one thing the second stanza, first line, I couldn't figure
out what you meant to say. could be me.
anyhow, thanks for sharing :)

It's 'sl*t' for the first line in the second stanza.

Excellent poetry, even writing about a very serious issue. I can relate really well to the second stanza and the fourth stanza. As can millions of others around the world to this poem. Well done, definitely one I will reread time and time again.
