A JURY OF YOUR PEERS

HI IM SOPHIE
THE ONE YOU ALWAYS LAUGH AT
WHY DO YOU HATE ME
CAN YOU EVEN ANSWER THAT
YOU'D HATE ME IF I WERE GAY
YOU'D HATE ME IF STRAIGHT
YOU'D HATE IT IF I HAD A GIRLFRIEND
OR IF THE QUARTERBACK ASKED ME ON A DATE
YOU'D MOCK ME IF I WERE POOR
EVEN MORE IF I WERE RICH
I'D EITHER BE AN INDIGENT 
OR A STUCK UP *****
MY BEAUTY WOULD INTIMIDATE YOU
MY FLAWS YOU WOULD FLAUNT
ONCE YOUR MEAN WORDS ARE SPOKEN
THEY DON'T DIE THEY HAUNT
REMEMBER THE THINGS YOU SAID TO ME
THE MOMENTS THAT MADE ME CRY
THE SAME WAY YOU DID
WHEN YOUR HEART WAS BROKEN BY THAT GUY
REMEMBER THE THINGS YOU DID TO ME
THAT LEFT BRUISES AND MADE ME BLEED
THE SAME WAY YOU DID 
WHEN YOU FELL FROM THE PYRAMID WHILE CHEERING FOR THE TEAM
ALL THE TIMES YOU EMBARRASSED ME
MADE ME HANG MY HEAD IN SHAME 
IF THEY DONT SAVE ME IN TIME
ARE YOU THE ONE TO BLAME
YOU SEE WE'RE NO DIFFERENT
YOU AND ME
EXCEPT I WAS PERSUCUTED BY A JURY OF MY PEERS
AND YOURS SET YOU FREE

    Here's a revenge poem if I ever read one, really giving it to that jerk that always got under your skin. It got kind of heavy in there at times, but you do that to us Valerie, you skillfully take us out to the very edge and dare us to go a bit further before bringing us back safely to go at it again -if we dare. Well I'm going back at it, on to your next poem -I do like this one Godd Job my firend!!! MC

    I wonder why people can be so blind - to cause such troubled, troubled minds. - Don't they know that love depends - on trust in those we call our friends.... Great writing... Jake

    Valerie, I never had a relationship like this... not that i can remember. It is sad to know all he did make you look like the bad one... i don't like being around peeps with bad judgment. You are a very good poet... and I will keep reading all your work, when I see you or your writings on line. You are awesome poet, and a new favorite of mine.... and one of the best poets among my favorite here on the soup... xox~ Linda
