Pronunciate, predominate, preponderate, prevaricate, Precipitate, pontificate, pomegranate, postulate – Problem? Do not attempt to look these words up! That dictionary shouldn’t be w-i-d-e open like your mouth Or can’t you handle multi-syllabic lexis? I thought you were TOUGH, MIGHTY and STRONG Yet lower, Lower, Down into the ground A million thoughts lay scattered, here, there and everywhere WAIT A MINUTE I thought you were INVINCIBLE and POWERFUL So HARD that you could DEFEAT anything that came your way I THOUGHT YOU COULD RUN AND hide Why, this room is as LOUD as s-i-l-e-n-c-e I see that your friends aren’t with you now What happened to your BIG mouth! Cat got your tongue? But when your friends are around Your tongue can’t resist a good workout Up, down, t-w-i-r-l it a-r-o-u-n-d I thought that Audacious was your middle name Oh, here comes Georgia Giraffe. Cat got your tongue again? The old YOU jumps out and reveals itself When YOU LOOK down AT PEOPLE Those known as the vulnerable So why is it that when people LOOK down AT YOU You put on a mask? Such an innocent and friendly face! Scared now? Met your match? I thought that if you had a pound for every fight you had won Every human alive would be penniless Silly sausage! Oh, sorry! Offended? Truth hurt? Are you a victim? Well, imagine what it feels like to be a victim! Where the world is an e-v-e-r-l-a-s-t-i-n-g nightmare Look here, look there, but there is no escape route I-m-a-g-i-n-e what it feels like to want to t-u-r-n back the clocks Where you can never see the shine If it isn’t too much of a HARD task, then Bully, OH bully
