Smile Back

When they mock you

Give them your brightest smile

And when they deride you

Just make them wait awhile

For when they do insult you

Their purpose is quite clear

To raise up in you an anger

To counteract their fear

So when the bully has a go

To them be extremely polite

It will get right up their nose

And you’ll have won the fight

  1. I hope young parents will teach their little ones about why people ‘Bully’. The truth about the bullies own hurt and insecurities. Mocking ..such a waste of time. And right up there with Assumptions! You are an upstanding writer Mr. Palethorpe! I always read your words! You are one of the honorable dying breed.
