Soft Weapons

Hateful words used as soft weapons
Barging in on society
Remorseless, unmerciful and hurtful
Deliberately chooses its targets
Anxiously moves in for the strike
Completes its calculated mission
Smugly waits for a reaction
Self-righteously claims victory
Thoroughly satisfied, energized
Readying for more
Circular by design
Contrived to offend
Hateful words by choice
Formulated to deceive
To which we are subjected
Civility losing to hate
