The Attacker

 Hello I’m the attacker,
I attack with greatest ease
Ill attack, if you annoy me, 
Ill attack you, if you please.
Ill attack you, during daylight
Ill attack you, through the night
Ill attack you If you’re wrong,
Attack, even When you're right

Ill attack you, verbally 
Or attack you, in a song
If you’re going to lose, 
I’ll choose
To jeer and clap along
Even when you’ve had a good day
I’m still on the attack
And if I’m stood behind you
Then I’ll attack your back

If you don’t like to be attacked 
Then ill attack you more
I love the weaker ones
They make sure I win the war
Ill attack the biggest
and I attack the small
If you’re standing on a ladder
I will shake it so you’ll fall

There is cruelty inside of me 
Gets pleasure from attack
There’s something there, 
that doesn’t care
Its empathy I lack.
My fuse it likes to see you lose
So i can win the battle
I like to watch you fail
And to see your self-worth rattle

Hello I’m your Attacker 
Ill attack what I can see
Ill attack your hidden flaws
and your personality
Ill attack your own philosophies
I’ll argue they’re mistaken
Pointless to fight
Because I’m right
I‘ll fight until your shaken

Ill attack at your intentions 
And I’ll question reasons why
If you’re honest I will twist things
Make your truth into a lie
Ill attack till your belittled
Till your confidence wears thin
And when I think I’ve won
I’ll gloat smugly with a grin

The worst thing you could do to me
Is to smile and walk away
But you fear I’d think you’re gutless
Which is how I know, you’ll stay
Even when you falsely protest
That you simply couldn’t care
I know you do or otherwise
You’d not still be standing there.

    The first few lines reminded me of a mosquito...only the females bite, you know. The next lines reminded me of the super powers. You have covered them all. Great write.
