Bully

Bully

.

Softly, slowly drawing strength,

Relying wholly on weakness seen,

Parasites steal the light,

Leaving only darkness after

Taking joy from others’ laughter,

Growing bigger, stronger, harder.

.

Cruelty, malice, hatred, spite

Flourish, but well out of sight,

Cunning, crafty as a fox,

Hiding under pleasantries

But dishing out his penalties,

Remedies for frailties.

Insanity

Insanity

.

Is insanity contagious

When behaviour is outrageous

Humanity has exited

And adrenalin is now

The drug of choice

Freely available

To all who are unable

To contain their hu- (a-)nger

Addicts all who need

Gratification in an instant

Satisfaction in the moment

Boasting bloodlust

Cruelty and destruction

Of animal existence

And when that is not sufficient

Turning on their own

Driven higher and higher

Until they im- or ex-plode

While dancing on the edge of death

.

Give me instead

The wild countryside

Sweet-smelling grasses

Unsullied waters

Peace and tranquillity

Kindness and harmony

The way to truly survive

This rat-race called life
