Justice And Revenge - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

the temptation is always there
that when a tooth is removed
then it must be paid with a tooth
that when life, to be frank about it,
is taken, then the taker must be put to death

there is this feeling
that an empty space must be filled
with revenge

they will wait for me now
and it will be long
too long that they will look for me
and ask me what i am doing
and i will tell them
i am just giving back
what you have all
taken from me
