Bully

I know you.
You may not care for me, and I don't care much for you,
But I know you.
Jealousy is your seed
And envy is your color
And hate is your signature.
Maybe you don't have a good home life
Maybe you don't get enough attention there
Or maybe you're just plain old mean-spirited.
I know you.
You like to pick on the different kids,
The ones who stand out
And you try to make them think they are different in a bad way.
I don't care for you, but I sure do know you.
Tears are your happiness
And everyone knows when you've been bullying
Because you have a certain smirk on your lips
As if to say, "I got them good,"
And we all know you by this.
Maybe someday we'll find your weakness,
That one thing that makes you like the rest of us,
And we'll start thinking of you as a person
But for now you have one name and one title.
I hope someday we can care more for you
But until then, we just know you as
Bully.
