Fresh Bullies Are Cowards


Most bullies are cowards

Most dictators are liars

Criminals and backstabbers

In the face of tough fighters

They run and hide under the beds

They fear reprisals and raids.


The best way to fight and defeat a bully

Is to use at least equal force. Be brave

Fight and punch like a fearless slave

Of a few centuries ago. Be plucky

‘Cause bullies lose all the time

And always pay for the crime.


I don’t condone violence

I believe in good defense

Be prepared for anything

Be nice and be ready to sting

Like the great Muhammad Ali

Like a strong and friendly bee.


Most bullies are afraid to fight

They run after the first roaring strike

I know, I was once young, that’s right

Be unafraid to tell them to take a hike

Safety and defense come first and heroism last

Always help others and learn from the past.
