a song for alanis morrisette or a spoken word by helen mirren….either one works for me.


Most people will sympathize

when others apologize.

This is just a plain and simple fact.

Constant darkness in your scene,

being cruel and oh so mean,

Is this how your always going to act?

Vitriolic, don’t have many friends

will not even try to ever make amends.

Vitriolic, never kind or warm,

you have all the sunshine of a thunderstorm.

Because of all the things you say

People want to walk away

It can be demeaning, vile and crude.

Climb that ladder, rung by rung,

Spewing acid from your tongue

Always getting off on being rude.

Vitriolic, speaking without care,

fire from your eyes with your Cruella stare.

Vitriolic, haven’t got a clue,

hope your ivory tower has an obstructed view.

Penurious with all your hate,

thinking that you’re really great,

while drowning in your ego and your pride.

Spouting fury, fast and loose

this is really no excuse

for all the ugliness you have inside.

Vitriolic, thinking you’re the boss.

Burning all your bridges will have such a cost.

Vitriolic, with your iron-fisted glove,

You are now the person no one wants to love.
