Exploring the Effects of Nerve Venom

I ran into a word the other day:"  "Nerve Venom."  I think it's a wonderfully descriptive term. And it inspired me to write a short poem. 

So what is "nerve venom" and what does it do? 

When a person is in a down or weakened condition or state of mind, they send out vibes that let others know this.  Other people pick up these vibes and those predisposed to being predator-types  (even generally good people) become inspired to pounce, to judge, to take advantage of someone less able to protect themselves.
