Cynthia and Marley are kindergarteners.
“Stupid!” Cynthia grumbled at Marley.
She did not reckon Marley as stupid.
Cynthia was envious of her.
“No, you’re stupid!” Marley whined back.
She did not consider Cynthia as unintelligent.
Rather, it would have made Marley look
if she had just stood there
while words being cast at her.
Maybe we are the same with
we grow older
And the only difference is that
we just select our words more
As we are propelled by
the want of revenge
From within us
