The bullies


The bullies


Not usually acting alone
they loiter along common
corridors in twos or threes

mocking everything

especially yesterday's
disappointments

you can hear them:
      the false sympathies
      the put downs
      the blaming
      the sarcasm

the constant harassment
draining the life
and color out of you
with each foot step
in their direction.


What would it take
to shut them up?
