two steps behind

the bully is not the big fella

says no you can’t come in

but the little girl

two steps behind you

pulling apart your clothes

how you spoke with the man

& given chance she’d rag

on your education music taste


just to elevate herself over you

& you can look at this dispassionately

she is persecuting from a victim position

knows no better way to be

but right now with the low snickers

from her friends the glower of the big man

all you get to do is walk away


this game is not yours to play
