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 .

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. :)
