Cruel People

A wise person to me once did say
Those who treat creatures in a cruel way
Can be cruel to people as well
For others they like making life earthly hell
Some enjoy inflicting on others physical and mental pain
From being cruel great pleasure they do gain
Their sort cannot be compassionate and kind
To be cruel is a flaw of the mind
Cruel people who over others have power
Beneath them the timid do cower
The bullies their victims never spare
And sad to say their sort are not rare
Those who to creatures cruel things do
Can be cruel to humans too.
