Backbiters Always Feel Mighty - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Nobody wants to be thought of as dumb!
Even though they do things stupid.
And...
Nobody wants to be the one that runs!
Even in the doing they prove it.

But when they backbite they feel mighty.
Because they feel protected by a listening ear.
And backbiters always feel mighty.
Because they don't want their fears to appear.
Backbiters feel they're mighty...
When the coast is clear,
From them to accuse and abuse...
Whomever they choose that isn't near.

Nobody wants to be thought of as dumb!
Even though they do things stupid.
And...
Nobody wants to be the one that runs!
Even in the doing they prove it.

But when they backbite they feel mighty.
Because they feel protected by a listening ear.
And backbiters always feel mighty.
Because they don't want their fears to appear.
Backbiters feel they're mighty...
When the coast is clear,
From them to accuse and abuse...
Whomever they choose that isn't near.
