The Bully

The Bully

A Poem by Baby Ricochet
"

I wrote this for a contest. No one's going to write from the bully's perspective so I figured I would. My apologies to my gay friends for use of the "F" word. It's just for effect

"


What are you looking at f****t
   Want my fist in your face
Shove your head into the toilet
 Teach you the word disgrace

   I love to see you terrified
   Cause you're my little b***h
Brings me joy to hear you plead
     It makes my life so rich

Don't you know it's encouraging
   To see you squirm around
  Crying like a wounded kitten
   I stomped into the ground

   I live for fear and misery
     It's all I've ever known
   With an alcoholic mother
 and a cruel step dad at home

He beats me with a studded belt
    He burns me with a pipe
He tried to rape me in the a*s
When mom passed out at night

   He torments me for pleasure
      Until I fight him back
So he cries to my w***e mother
   blames me for the attack

  That drunken b***h takes his side
         tries to throw me out
 But the judge says I'm a minor
     So home's my only route

There's no safe place for me to go
       I don't know what to do
      So I act out with violence
        and take it out on you

       I intimidate and terrify
        Make life a living hell
     torture torment and horrify
    So fear that old school bell

      Then back to my tormentors
         Back to my worst fears
  Back to school to share the pain
        I've endured for years

  None of you seem to understand
         It's all part of a system
    A cycle of violence and misery
      and I'm just another victim

Snickers Ricochet,
Okay not a bad thing to say but I am at a conundrum, I want this to for my library and love it through and through. Now I ask which of this one and the one I had just reviewed would you prefer to have be the art on you featured artist segment on my page? You have to choose or the public because I am for once and rarely drawn at a line of equal love for both works?
What do we do friend?
Sincerely
Chris
110/100 --- again I seriously wish I could rate this high on the rare occasions I want to.

I see this every day at school - and I have learned so many bully's stories that are close to what you portray here so well. You wrote exactly what needs to be said on the topic. Great write, Mark!

Sometimes I wonder when all the bullying will stop. The bully often needs help, as well as the victim. well done. Bullies have feelings too, though sometimes its easy to forget that. Your poem is amazing. I am also in the contest, and I really hope you place, spread some knowledge around. Keep Writing!!!!! :D

Sad, really, simply because more often than not this is the truth. Scratch a bully and find a victim. Well done, Mark.

Always my pleasure, Baby...
Yes, bullies are often victims. But that doesn't keep them from being bullies...evil and dangerous...

There's a lot to be said for sterilization...

LOL! I think so too.
You make an excellent point here. Bullies are often a victim of a vicious system that allows them no escape. That doesn't make their actions excusable, but we must acknowledge that fact. I love the way you've done this, shifting from the hardened, angry bully to the soft, endangered victim and then back again. Great job, Mark.

I do agree a bully is also a victim...somehow, somewhere aaand at sometime they were turned into a bully...I don't think you are born a bully...painful for the one being bullied who has to wear the anger of that bully every day. In grade school we had a boy that we had nicked named Hop Sing...the reason for this is he had a limp and ran with a strange gait...not till I was older did I understand he had Polio and wore a brace for many years....he was a bully or so we thought...really it was us kids who was the first to bully without understanding what it was all about.
