Addressing a Troll

I know you surf the message boards
Trolling for something to sneer about
I have no doubt
You’ve seen my latest word
I know you think you know it all
Walking that line between fear and doubt
That’s what it’s about
Stalking the absurd
I know you have an opinion
And feel the need to share it here with me
It’s all too plain
You enjoy trauma and pain
I know you want to change the world
Into something weak and stupid
But what is it
That makes you think you’re sane?
Take your time and think about it
You don’t have to answer me today
I wasn’t doing anything that makes much difference
to you anyway
Take your time and think about it
You don’t have to prove your case to me
I don’t believe your honesty, your false revolt
and these sad games you play
I know you check your email often
Hoping for a vindicating post
I have no doubt
You’ve read my latest lines
I know there’s nothing in this world
To make you want to care
You’ve given up
On changing anything
I know you think that tearing down
Is making room for something
It’s pretty clear
Destruction’s dear to you
I know you think there’s something cool
About defrocking every fool
In your empty world
Have you hoarded some great pearl?
Take your time and think about it
You don’t have to answer me today
After all my time is not worth much to you,
admit it, won’t you?
Take your time and think about it
You won’t bother me with your sad statistics
I don’t believe your cause, your faith is lost
Who needs you?
