       I used to think it great fun
      Watching them pick on her
             Being so witchy
         It must have really hurt
        It used to be quite funny
           Until I looked to see
That it wasn‟t her they were picking on
         But this time it was me
    I wished I hadn‟t laughed now
        Because it aches inside
   The trouble that they cause me
        Was far too much to hide
     Now I know what it feels like
   Being picked on time after time
  I now know not to laugh at them
      And that bullying is a crime
