Bully

Bully

One,
Two,
Three,
Shaking.
Four,
Five,
Six,
Breathe.
Seven,
Eight,
No more.
Pushups.
I fall
With a gasp
One knee
To the floor
I see you
Laughing
Just outside
The door
Laughing
At me,
Gasping
For air
My puffy
Red skin
That once
Had been fair
“It’s cuz you’re a girl”
I cried that night
I cried because,
I thought you were right.
But look at me now,
Showered in fame,
Because I won
Your stupid game.
And just look at you,
Alone in a bar,
You don’t have a job,
You totalled your car.
One,
Two,
Three,
Thousand dollars
That you
don’t have.
Look at me,
One,
Two,
Three,
Four, Five,
I can keep going,
To Five-hundred and three
I’m stronger
Than you
And still
A girl too.
I guess that’s
What happens
To people
Like you,
I guess
That’s what happens
To bullies.
