Death by Gossip

  

            I am here for the pain 
            yes I am entertained

            a public hanging my choice
            living amongst rules I use my voice

            the tongue is sharp as a finished blade   
            my one reason to make you afraid

            pleasure is mine to spread all within a crowd
            To hang , draw and quarter your soul allowed

             gathering a crowd is easy to find
             for many like I are here that threw you aside .

    You know with a wee bit of spit polish you could turn this into a ghazal! really! [ I am here for the pain, yes I am entertained./A public hanging would be my choice insane, yes I am entertained] Your repeated phrase would be [I am entertained] your rhyming word pain/insane etc. Congrad's Light & Love

    Shanity this is deep and powerful. The reader can feel the hate and anger in this piece. Words can hurt a lot more then physical pain sometimes. Nice job I have also written a few bully ones. Feel free to check them out.

    Yes I will , I do love your writings . I feel a whole book should be published on Bullies , The victims are many , some suicidal . I think these should be posted in Schools . :) Thank-you my sweet friend .

    Wonderful poem. Words have a great power and we should be careful how we use them. You bring a good message.

    I honestly felt like I was reliving a scene from "Mean Girls". Made me feel uneasy and have a defiant stance/expression in a good way. :)

    Thank-you ! I was trying to get that though to others , the sad bulling exist , and now..to a thousand as opposed to a crown in school . " Advocate for the broken , my words spoken. " Shanity rain .
