On Retribution…

I've always believed what goes around, comes around. You do good and good will come back. You do bad, that will surely come back. You do nothing; you’re dead weight on this planet. However, thinking about retribution all of a sudden, I penned down the verses below. These things happen when I go into these sudden episodes of words flowing into my brain. Some people call it inspiration, some people a muse, I call it both.

So, here is my poem on the age-old phrase, ‘Karma is a bitch.’

Karma is a Bitch

Coming back to haunt your dreams,
Your every moment;

Karma is a bitch, they say.

Just because I can’t, she will.
She’s coming for you,
Karma is a bitch they say.

She has been lying in wait,
A stalker she is;
Karma is a bitch they say.

No matter how, when, where, why.

She will strike, I’m sure;
Karma is a bitch they say.

When you did me wrong, she saw,
She smiled and waited;
Karma is a bitch they say.

And now that you are exposed,
She sharpens her scythe;
Karma is a bitch they say.

You cower and weep and beg,
She still smiles and swings;
Karma is a bitch they say.
