SILENT BULLYING, by Laura Crean.
Whispering, whispering behind every door,
gossip and judgement that's hard to ignore.
Malicious, vindictive, spiteful and planned,
all done in a vacuum, all spread second hand.
The bully is silent, sneaky and worse,
spreads subtle rumours like casting a curse.
The magic is dark and it creeps through the cracks,
It isolates, violates, cuts like an axe.
And it's hard for the victim to understand why
such lies and deception to them is applied,
when nobody speaks of the truth that can cleanse
because nobody asks for the victim's defence --
Why would they? How could they? When they've already been told
by the wind and the grapevine -- that news is so old!
Often the judged don't even know they have been,
that's the plan of the devil -- the truth can't be seen,
It is buried and hidden, locked up with a key
that is only known to the liar on their murderous spree!
It is funny how nobody questions the facts,
they are happy to follow in one person's well laid tracks.
And as the life of an innocent falls down round their ears
the karma just builds more momentum through the years.
God knows who is guilty and whose heart has been stained
by the snake of deception -- by Lucifer trained,
and he asks for no proof, he needs no defence
because God judges all people at the sinner's expense.
