What you said truly gave me pause for thought

So much I could have said, comes in afterthought

That witty response, that cutting remark

That wouldn’t come until well after dark

Your tongue is sharp like a sword

Leaving my flesh cut and scored

Sometimes I sit my mouth hanging open

There was no response nothing was spoken

I gaped I stared I shuddered in awe

And I wonder who has the tragic flaw

Is it me spellbound and shocked

Or you who goes off half cocked

Speaking words cruel and cutting

Leaving others running and ducking

Never knowing what will come next

You leave those around you perplexed

You think your being funny and smart

Your nothing more than a sour little tart

    A bully with words is a bully still,
    Making you feel silly against your will,
    Stand up, I say, and hold your ground,
    No need to take abuse through sound.

    So, pause and think how to react,
    The next time bully gets in his act,
    And be prepared with sharp rebuke,
    You never know, might make him puke.

  2. Sounds like a charmer. 🤣🤣 But really, bullies are the worst. They take away pieces of us until we are shells.
