Karmic Retaliation

TwoSatyrs/1619/Rubens
Who can wait upon the Universe 
to carefully consider doling out
each dollop of corrective karma?
Who has the time to wait & wait
for all the moving pieces to align 
in the next life drama?
Who dares to wait that much longer
as the courts fail again to convict another warmonger
& that feeling of helpless failure grows even stronger?
There’s a need for rectitude to prevail
even if it means
dying in a glorious blaze of machine gun hail

Wanna lace a working artist’s palm? Just clap. NV
