No Tolerance For Bullying

Updated on March 27, 2014

This is a story of a girl that was constantly bullied at school.

She believed in peace, so fighting was not her rule.

They would kick her in the face and pull her hair.

Everyone would look away and didn't seem to care.

She told her parents and they would meet with the school board.

But nothing was done making the girl emotionally floored.

Everyday at the hands of these bullies she suffered abuse.

She decided being peaceful was no longer of good use.


Since there were three, she decided to take them on one by one.

With a one sided grin she said, "This is going to be fun."

She studied them as if she was going to take a test.

Thinking of different ways to attack them and what time would be best.

She followed Sarah into the locker room and softly closed the door.

Poor Sarah never saw her coming, so now she lies headless on the cold floor.

The girl said to herself, "That was easy."

But the blood was making her stomach kind of queasy.

Dana was the meanest of them all.

So she distracted her by telling her that she had a phone call.

As Dana walked to the phone, she did not realize it was a trap.

The girl crept up behind and wrapped a cord around her neck until it went snap.

She let out a blood curling laugh and said, "One more to go!

Hmmm...my predictions are not right. Where in the heck is that Zoe?"

She looked around until she heard a scream.

It was Zoe standing there traumatized by Dana's murder scene.

The girl rushed Zoe and stabbed her in the neck with a poison dart.

She felt a tap on her shoulder that almost stopped her heart.


It was a group of the other kids they had hurt.

No one spoke a word...they just got to work.

All of the bodies and evidence were cleaned away.

And no one ever spoke another word of this day.

Fortunately, this didn't really take place.

But the thought of it put a smile on her face.

Instead she recorded the terrorizing events.

To different news stations all of the tapes went.

The school board couldn't take the pressure.

Expelling the bullies were their only measure.

One by one they were walked out the door.

Giving the message that bullying will not be tolerated anymore.

      @Denise...I am so glad that you were able to get the bullying stopped. The children look for us to protect them and comfort them. It is so hard when no one listens to you because they have their own agenda. Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your nephew's story. It is always a pleasure to hear from you :)

      Clever-the rhyme that tells the story-leaving a powerful message. My nephew was bullied by one boy in particular in his new school when he came to live with me. It didn't last long b/c I made sure the school knew I was not going to tolerate it. I think it is very important that parents advocate-but, they can only do this if the child communicates. In addition, the child needs much support in learning to stand up and speak up. It is miserable being picked on in school!

      @Nell....sometimes you have to make a stand. I don't see anything that you did was wrong. You were only protecting yourself. If I would of had that courage, I would of done the same thing. That's what they get :) Thank you for stopping by. It is always a pleasure to hear from you.

      Hi, oh my God! you have got it exactly right. I was bullied so badly at school, and each day and every night I was terrified, when I was at school I tried to keep my head down, but it didn't work. until the last year at school. I lost my temper for the first time ever, and, as a girl kicked me, I grabbed her and just went mad. nobody did it again, and I wouldn't like to see anybody do this, but I couldn't help it, telling the school is much better, nice one, rated up, cheers nell

      Thank you for visiting nikki. Thank you for sharing your story about your sister. I was too a victim of bullying. I understand how it feels. When my parents try to rectify the situation, it only made it worse for me.

      @row777 thank you so much for visiting. I am glad that you enjoyed it.

      Sassyk73, this was a pleasure to read and the message rings so true. My little sister was the victim of some horrible bullying during middle school, and the only answer she seemed to be able to get from anyone was, "Just ignore them." Ignoring the problem doesn't make it go away, and it certainly doesn't help the person that is being bullied! Thanks for the great Hub!

      Thank you Spirit Whisperer.....you are so right. It is a shame how this is such a big issue and is not being recognized. The schools plaster the 0 tolerance bullying signs all over but it seems that they determine what is considered bullying.

      My son had an encounter with bullying while in private school and the principal said this is a private matter. They called the parents but we were not allowed in the meeting. Nothing was done.

      At that time we thought it was a lost cause becsuse we didn't have the mind to take it any further so we removed him from the school.

      Yes, I completely agree with you in that the anti bullying policies in schools merely give lip service to the problem because they are compelled by law to have such a policy and are ineffectual in practice.

      Most educators are ignorant to the dynamic of bullying and so do not really have a clue how to deal with it. Parents who want the best for their children also don't understand the dynamic or how to advise their children and just hope the problem just goes away by itself.

      Education should not be just for making a living but for life and as such bullying is something that everyone should receive an education in. What is more important a course in Calculus or a course in understanding the dynamics of bullying and how to handle it?

      Where are our priorities and what are we waiting for?

      Another thought provoking hub that deals with a very important issue that nobody really wants to tackle. Thank you.

      Hey MyseriousOne...thank you for stopping by. It is always a pleasure to see you.

      When I was in grade school I was constantly bullied. The teachers were like it's a part of growing up. My family told me to fight or stay away from them. I was terrified but I learned from that and taught my kids better. No one should have to suffer that. God bless you.
