Tactics of the narcissist…
A playground gone wrong.
The bully made a shit-list of people he’s gonna get.
He gets in with the popular kids,
making up stories about those on the list,
to get the main boys on side.
Then he kicks the shit out of them one by one,
and shakes them down for sweets and lunch money.
Everyone just stands around watching and cheering,
sharing out the sweets afterwards.
If they try to fight back,
everyone crowds around and joins in,
fuelled by the stories he told them.
If anyone defends them,
they get added to the list.
Where are the few good men?
Where are the better angels?
The bully is winning.
