old folk’s home bully


s/he’d been teased, spit on,

beat up, insulted, laughed at &

sent home crying

on many an occasion,

all through elementary school &

when the hormones kicked in

during high school,

she saw even more turmoil

as her/his friends

drove the stake in further

ridiculing her/his class status,

her/his skin color, ethnicity,

etc., etc., etc.---

bored teenagers made her/his life

hell &


s/he kept away her/his revenge

all bottled up inside,

waiting &

during its hibernation,

growing like the most threatening of


s/he finally was able to leave

that bubbling cesspool of a small town,

with all the bullies

fading in her/his wake &

while they forgot all about her/him,

s/he remembered every little detail,

her/his hate brooding within,

buying her/his time.


the years went by,

as the years do &

s/he returned to the little town

where s/he had grown up &

where s/he’d been teased all those years


now an older person, with a good hunk of

change in the bank, s/he enlisted in a

home, where s/he’d heard that some of

those same people who’d treated her like

shit way back when,

now resided.


having spent many years at the gym &

dieting well, taking self-defense courses,

etc., s/he was primed & ready

to take out those few years of teasing

within the crucial teenage time,

out on those very people who’d done it,

but who now, so old & fragile,

could barely get up the energy to scream---

so s/he tormented them day & night,

while they withered away & died,

one by one,

having spent their last moments

wandering in a proverbial “hell,”

which came to them via

someone they shouldn’t have fucked with

so very many years ago.
