YOU WERE A BASTARD

You were emboldened 
Felt so secure
I was so doubtful 
Felt so unsure.

I begged you …. I pleaded
Got down on my knees
You said to speak louder
To say, “pretty please!”

Sadistic ….. unfeeling
Hateful and cruel
I fed the fire
Supplied the fuel.

Needed some backbone
Some nerve and some balls
To stand up to you
To get over that wall.

You didn’t respect me
I was a fool
You were a bastard
A bully….. a tool.

I mixed you a cocktail
Added lime…..just a squeeze
Gin over ice
With some blue antifreeze.

You started to shiver
You started to gasp
You fell off your chair
I started to laugh.

Your nose starting bleeding
There were tears in your eyes
You laid  on the floor
You had started to cry.

I waited an hour 
Before calling for help
I dialed 911
Cleaned the glass out myself.
