Snot-Nosed Bully

The bombs still fall
People still die
Behind it all
a fragile guy
who felt lessened
And thus “threatened”
the lout lashed out

      1. Need to put it out into the universe.
        If we believe in the impossibility of it, World Peace will never manifest.
        We say it often enough and believe and the it happens.
        Thanks for the comment, dear, S. You’re amazing. Be well. Let’s declare peace ✌️ yes? Yes!

      1. When you write a comment, those letters–if they are letters–follow immediately after your words…like an emoji, but not. I tried to Google and find an answer, but was unsuccessful. It’s no big deal–if you’re not typing them yourself, then maybe it’s an odd tech thing that happens, though I don’t think I’ve seen it on any other blog 🙂

      2. Ah, I think, if you aren’t seeing it, that is supposed to be the Ukrainian flag emoji. I’ve been using it a bit lately. I don’t know why emojis work some places and not others, though I do know different devices may have slight variations in how they display them. I’ll post it after this: 🇺🇦

      3. I found a site that describes emojis–and the ua was listed there for Ukraine, as were others…so I guess I just didn’t research far enough when I inquired of you 🙂
