Bullied Bloodied

When people break your heart,
Find new people
Find a new heart

When friends turn on you,
When friends deceive you,
When friends lie to you,
Search for new people
Read a Bukowski poem about a flying radio
Drink beer or stop drinking beer.
Do Something, avoid nothing.

Nothing is no remedy.
Nothing is worse than being laughed at,
ridiculed, sneered at, bullied and bloodied.

Lay in bed all day if you want.
Dream about stabbing an old friend in the heart, if you want.
Better to find new people, even if your bullied and bloodied
Better to live, a teacher once said.

SC -
great advice expressed poetically. Can we ask for anything more from a writer?
Well, you got that covered too. Excellent piece.
In the sea of government cubicles, don't forget about yourself.
