why they bully

he's always eager for school to end

they tease and taunt

his jeans never fit right,

he only has two sweaters.

but to them,

it's funny

 

she goes about her school day embarrassed

they tease and taunt

she wears a hijab

it's her culture.

but to them,

it's stupid 

 

all day she's self-conscious and quiet

they tease and taunt

she can't help it,

she just has a speech impediment.

but to them,

it's annoying

 

everyone knows how to trigger him 

they tease and taunt

he's in a special needs class

but to them,

it's entertainment.
