Let verbal hand grenades fly
share gossip or even lie
spread slander, swear, bully,
create chasms between others

By detonating a bombshell
you know will shock
just to get a reaction
some specialise in verbal violence

Which precipitates disunity
raises suspicions and discomfort
anonymity in cyber space
allows people to disturb

Appreciate open honest chat
without hidden agendas
or stabbing in the back
direct and clear, avoid all fear

Give these violators the short shift
don’t tolerate verbal violence
in any form, make them conform
to the standard norm

Daily Prompt:  Detonate
