Ridicule - Poem by Ray Mather

Ridicule
The fear that rules the school
So damaging and cruel
A devastating tool
Making someone feel a fool

Singling out and sullying
The worst kind of bullying
Don’t do it

It’s just a bit of fun
(As long as you are not the one)
And so easily done
A clever crack or pun
And the joke will run and run

Singling out and sullying
The worst kind of bullying
Don’t do it

Silly plays on names
Inability in Games
Lists of fabricated claims
Snide suggestions and blames
All add petrol to the flames

Singling out and sullying
The worst kind of bullying
Don’t do it

From teacher’s mocking moans
To student’s sneering groans
Humiliating tones
Words land like sticks and stones
And hurt as bad as broken bones
