No, Bully!

Written by Nikki Aksamit 

A bully is a boy or a girl who makes you feel bad. Who says things or does things That make you feel sad.

 

A bully may laugh When you make a mistake. Or call you mean names

Push you, shove you or shake.

 

What do you do If you’re bullied today?

You must try to stay calm And just walk away.

 

Go tell a grown up

They'll know what to do. Teachers and parents are here to help you.

 

What if you see

A bully pick on a friend?

How do you make

The meanness come to an end?

 

Tell the bully to stop! 

Take your friend by the hand.

Go find a grown up

They will understand!

 

School is a safe place

To learn, grow, and play

If you speak up and stand up

Bullies can't ruin the day!
