The kids are mean to me

/ The bully

The kids in my class are mean to me,

their mean and I don’t know why!

They say bad things to my face

knowing I won’t reply.

 

And their real nasty sometimes,

stirring me up and calling me names.

And I wonder how they would feel

if people treated them the same?

 

One day this kid called “Robert” was bullying me

and then he began throwing stones.

He said that he was going to “bash me up,”

when I was all alone.

 

But I didn’t throw any stones back at him,

I didn’t want to play his silly game.

But that didn’t seem such a good idea; it even seemed to encourage him,

as he landed his good aim.

 

And then I just ran off crying,

and what’s more, I didn’t tell a soul.

I think that bullies are not very nice people who are

prepared to be daringly bold.

 

And some adults say that “I should stand up for myself,”

but I say, “what do you do when the bullies five foot two!”

what do you do when their mean for no reason

and just wants to hurt you!?

 

So I’ve got a problem with bullies,

why do they always want to pick on me!?

O I’ve got a problem with bullies

why don’t they just ‘let me be!?’

 

The kids in my class do mean thing to me,

their mean and I don’t know why!

They say bad things to my face

knowing I won’t reply.
