Battered and Bruised

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Stones, rocks and boulders
Hard and bone-shattering

Might cause pain, might kill

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But words, sharp as quills *
Will do the most damage

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Racist attacks
Harsh words yelled at players

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Support Sol Campbell
For what he says is true.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 The long and short of it
Being this will cause
The most lasting pain
In the end.

Notes

* porcupine quills, not the “magic” ones
