Click-clack of a keyboard spreads the dark call. Theme: Cyberbullies (Form: Terzanelle)
Once whispered across an old backyard fence,
words virally sprawl through the ether around
spreading vile poison like a dark incense.

Rumors, in print, become truth most profound
formed from cruel venom hidden in a heart.
Words virally sprawl through the ether around.

Innuendo is launched, thrown like a dart;
its malignant touch spreads without control
formed from cruel venom hidden in a heart.

The infection rages, cancer of the soul,
inundating the hearts of the innocent.
Its malignant touch spreads without control.

In desperation, to end the torment,
a choice that denies the tears that will fall
inundating the hearts of the innocent.

Click-clack of a keyboard spreads the dark call
once whispered across an old backyard fence.
A choice that denies the tears that will fall
spreading vile poison like a dark incense.
