Gets a little cold

when SHE

is walking in

the Playground,
gets a little rocky when

her gang is throwing stones,
gets a little wet

 when I get spit

upon my  back-bones
but I'm used to
wearing spit,

even though

I'm tired of it,
(my soul has grown

immune to it,you know.)

by serpent lies
where bullies

cheer the view,
playground owned
by those who stone
a segregated

Outstanding expose, Kay!

My special-needs grandson was a victim of horrifying bullying; eventually, the police were brought in. What needs to be done, is preventive maintenance, rather than wait till it's out of hand, and often fatal!

I think this is good. I don't like bullies in any walk of life.
Well done Kay.

This is a very true and all too often familiar account of life at school which many I am sure can relate to all too easily,
it is brilliantly written by an excellent poet,
thank you Kay,

The bullies in schools are getting much worse and worse. The zero tolerance isn't heling the kids, they did not want to attend schools anyway, so it suits them well.

The parents are the ones who are really suffering! Too bad!!!!!

Bullies, believe it or not are that way because they have low self-esteem issues & are unable to cope with acceptance from others. You wrote this so well and in such a phenomenol way.

So glad this is fiction for you. As one of the bullied kids in school, it's much like being pecked to death by hens...
Reviewed by Felix Perry 7/10/2006
Wow this could read as a commentary of our times, for although schools have introduced zero tolerence to bullying it seems the adults still haven't gotten the message. Well written and great message.

Good work, Kay. I agree with Eileen.

Enjoyed your take on a problem that is endemic in society.

Reviewed by E T Waldron 7/10/2006
Excellent descriptions Kay! Such a sad fact that there are bullies not only of children many husbands (and wives) are bullies too and throughout all relationships we can find that we are harrassed by bullies in all walks of life. It is a despicable trait usually carried on from one generation to the next, copied from parents who are bullies. This is a great expose`/poem!
