ONE MAN DEAD AND ONE LIE TOLD

ONE MAN DEAD AND ONE LIE TOLD

I shot John Brown

In his wicked head,

Then, shot three more times

To make sure he was dead,

 

John Brown was a bully

Since he was ten,

But now he’ll never ever

Be a bully again,

 

I laid a second gun

Beside him on the floor,

Then, I quickly ran

Outside the door,

 

If I get caught,

I will be bold,

There will be one man dead

And one lie told.

  1. Beautifully written. Powerful. Wish there was a perfect way to end humanity’s eternal problem: power abuse, where the abused very often end up abusing because they are seeking revenge for the inflicted wounds caused by a family member, a classmate, a workmate and their silent followers, etc. I am glad I once helped solve a case of bullying in one of my classes.
