My nose is broken,
it’s hard to breathe.
I’m trapped alone,
the bully won’t leave.
My eyes are swelling,
it’s hard to see.
I’m crying from pain,
he still won’t leave.
A bystander’s watching,
he’s staring at me.
There’s pity in his eyes,
it’s not hard to see.
The bully’s getting tired,
he’s backing away.
I hope he leaves,
I pray, I pray.
He gets up, grabs his stuff,
and heads for the door.
On his way out,
he throws my books on the floor.
I climb up to my feet,
admit my defeat,
get my books off the floor,
and stagger for the door.

To tell one's name; the livelong June-- To an admiring bog"

A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.

"It's a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone, hidden only God knows where."
-James Clavell, "Shogun"

I really liked it. Doesn't get too shrouded in fancy words, and is straight to the point (and normally I'm a huge geek for fancy, elegant diction etc. ) Nice job!
