Vengeance

POETRY FORMAT, 13 Jan 2014

Tom Greening – TRANSCEND Media Service

Hatred like a high velocity bullet
pierced my skin, gathered my organs
(heart, brain, the rest)
came out the other side
and splattered all over the world.
Thus I got my vengeance.
I slumped to the ground,
a righteous martyr,
a fool, lying in a puddle
of mud, blood,
and, from the gods,
ridicule.
