Trusting Tuesday and school bullies

two students showing a message against bullying

Trusting Tuesday and school bullies (A Senryū )

I did not take it!
I swear! I’m telling the truth!
Nothing but the truth!


Tom witnessed a boy on the toilet floor pleading innocence.
The bullies were kicking him for stealing a mobile phone.
Did the school believe him?
Would Tom be the next victim if he had reported?

  3. The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.- John F. Kennedy

  1. Dear Chen,

    Only egoists can do such things, they have lost their conscience and see competitors everywhere whom they want to eliminate, at the price of their own honor of decency and respect. Life will still show them what they have done wrongly – painful and stony can then be their way.

    All those who are still bullying now should know that when one sits in a glass house, one does not throw stones.

    All the best to you 🙂


  2. The truth is the best because it stands like a broad daylight. Since the introduction of alternative fact, the truth has been farfetched. But please tell the truth because it will eventually set you free.As for lies it will eventually catch up with you.
