By Josie Whitehead
Calling people hateful names?
It’s something we don’t do.
Kindness, love, human respect
Is preferred by me and you.
Calling people hateful names
Designed to cause distress?
The ones who do these awful things
Need others to impress.
Without support from other folk
There’s nothing they can gain,
And, left without support around,
Their words are called in vain.
For bullies - yes that’s what they are -
Need others for support
And name calling, designed to hurt,
To them is just a sport.
Ignore the ones who do these things.
Make friends with those that care -
And soon their games will disappear
Like sunbeams in the air.
