Sometimes my mind wanders to odd places....
One day I was thinking about bullies, and how they can appear bigger than life when they are on the offensive.  And just what if........they could be shrunken down to size...and made to feel vulnerable and small.  Sized by their mind, and crimes. Sized by design.  And learn what its like when the shoe is on the other foot.
 
 
Carpet-tall Pun-ishment
 
 
A perilous life is found indeed
For those who live, a life unseen
Above the wood, beneath the sole
Annihilated on the stroll
 
In fibered forests penalized
The meanest live now brutalized
In short their deeds now mark their size
Their tirades lost along with cries!
 
And how this sentence came to be
On those abusers of the wee
Tormenting bullies and their hordes
Squished beneath the shoe and board?
 
If I could only swear for sure
The fate of shrunken tormentors
I do believe them judged and done
For hurting others.....as THEIR fun
 
A size adjusted to their minds
Of particles to small to find
'Neath carpet fibers....or on wood
A different view now understood
 
Where gentle minds were branded weak
Where silence met with mocked critique
Where faith and virtue held no worth
Dismissed as tho.....the scum of earth
 
Appointed judge and juries see
The executioner's decree
The final fate on those that press
The gentle towards a new address
 
And in the end, it's they that give
Themselves a prision, which to live
In peril shadow.....of the shoe
Such evil learns.......a different view

Not so nice when the shoe is on the other foot!

Uniquely branded with the BIG PAX-mark, this is both compassionate and "in your eye"-stuff, Anita. And told in a way that young'uns, in particular, can probably identify with... speakin of which, in Christian circles, have you seen the T-shirts sporting the Nike trade-mark of the tick... but with the words: "Nice - just be it" instead of the "just do it"-thing... neat eh?? Like this totally coooooooool write! :)) TY Kate xx

Bullies are those who believe that they can piss into the wind and not have it hit them in the face. Great write, Anita!

Lady A,

An excellent, thought provoking write; as one who has been bullied, I felt this one, deeply. Thank you.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Then their size would match their puny self-esteem, which I suspect is the source which feeds their tyranny-victimizing the weak to make them feel strong. Fantastic peice, Anita!

The bigger the bully is, the small is the mind. This is so true!

A good thought-provoking piece!

You sum up perfectly the fate of the boasting bully
When the boot is on the other foot, those bullies don't have the bottle to take it...
Or as Harry Trueman used to say " If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen "...
Gotta love it
