Harshly Said

People speak
to one another
In the most violent and
harshest of ways
Often hiding their guilt
in humor
Preferring to stand
to corrected
On any
and all offense
Being right
and having monopoly
on truths
unknowable to most
Being in control
at all given times
To appear
invulnerable foe
In order
to save face
from the mightily feared
but feeble
threatening throngs
Life as a prison yard gangster
Harshly said
is harshly done
