4. Venom- Shaving Monkeys Sparrow

Okay, this is poetry so it's going to be quick and efficient.
I hacve to start by saying that I'm French and I'm used to reading classical poetry (Rimbaud, Hugo, Baudelaire, etc...) in sonnets and with strict rules and regulation. I study that, I'm used to that, so modern english poetry isn't my forte. I'm still going to read it and give some CC because, well, why shouldn't I?
Poetry CCs won't have the same format as story CCs, I hope you'll understand that!
This poem is about a young person who is a victim of bullying. The taunting an mockeries are compared to venom, not just any kind of venom, the worst kind: insect venom.
Then we have the vaccine metaphor. Perfect to make people who hate needles squirm and even puke if they feel the pain.
The words are well chosen and it's beautifully written, I certainly hope you'll rank high in the competition!
I think that I'll stop writing reviews for poems, I'm really not good at this, sorry. You still deserve the koala tea badge of approval, though!
Good luck and thank you for trusting me with your work!
Yours truly, Emilie
