The words fly around in whispers
wild sharp and whipping
feeding the negative energy
of the nasty and petty.
They believe their arrogance
shields them from being heard
What makes them so ravenous?
Does the answer lie in human nature
or societal pressure, constructed?
Both fine excuses, but that’s it
For anyone not living in the dark
the light shines clearly
exposing the naivety and
artlessness of their folly.
karma’s got teeth.
