A Bully Is Always A Coward - Poem by Francis Duggan
It takes a coward to be a bully and a bully is always a coward
And by instilling fear in the non aggressive the bully feels greatly empowered
But when the bully is stood up to he is not slow for to sense defeat
To save himself from a deserved beating he is very quick to retreat.
In the World there are too many bullies they are to be found everywhere
And every day good and nice people are bullied in the bigger World out there
Bullies are mostly males but also some females and all bullies one thing in common share
That of low self esteem they do suffer though of such they are not aware.
There are bullies in every school yard and in every workplace of them nothing good one can say
Some who are bullied do commit suicide such stories we hear of and read of every day
But when the bullies are stood up to they are very quick to back down
And it goes without saying that the bully is never the bravest one in the town.
There ought to be a law against adult bullying it is an obnoxious crime
Those who are found to be guilty of it ought to serve out some prison time
As well as being cowardly bullies are cruel hearted they instill in their victims fear
Of a brave act of one known to be a bully is something you never do hear.
