TWW - Karma

Karma Waits

you get what you deserve, mama warns,
karma hides under the bed, counting

to ten, to a million, waits, for tables to turn,
then delighted, jumps out, gotcha!

it will shout, deliver a finger-wagging lecture,
never, ever forget, I am always right behind you,

I see what you do, I hear what you think,
don’t cover your ears, there is no escape,

no, go away, I reply, you are not welcome,
but karma does not obey, our eyes lock,

a stare-down, within minutes I sag, guilt-
withered as always, I am first to look away

  2. An excellent view of karma. Scary in a fun sort of way. Nicely done.
