The Stick

I’m a cold and heartless prick
According to those with a pointed stick
They poke and prod and wonder why
I act like that then try to hide
I am truly sweet and nice
Some times that is my vice
For I will not reach for their stick
or knock it away with a gentle flick
That would only hurt their feelings
And I hate to see others reeling

    Clever and somewhat self-defacing. If and whenever you need to act, you will. Gratuitous violence seldom accomplishes anything but pain. Allan

    Exactly. It was one of those days where nothing I did was right, but speaking up would only make it worse

    Non violence is the best in any time in any part of the world, Adam
