Vicious & Mean

Vicious & Mean

the vicious
will convince us
that viciousness
is a mere extension
of meanness

the vicious
will convince
since we don't 
put down a dog
for just being mean
it means that
the meanness
inside the vicious dog
is enough
to keep it
from being put down
when it needs 
to be

don't let the vicious
convince us
that viciousness
is a mere extension
of meanness

though the differences
are subtle
the substiles
are the difference
between a nip
on the hand
and the brutal 
bloody 
rag doll 
mauling
of a little girl
in a sunday dress
with a lollipop
