Sticks, stones, hearts.

Bile and bitterness.

Age-old caustic complaints & complexes

Yielding frustration and rage.

Festering fissures erupt.

Into toxic words.

Vile, vitriolic venom.

Vicious, vengeful abuse.

Sarcasm, scorn and derision.

Sulphurous scars of yore

Opening wretched wounds anew.


Stick and stones may break bones.

But words break hearts

So as never to be mended again.
