Who can win a battle of spit
and revenge? And what
have they won? The pendulum
cycling: Someone loses, someone
No thought is given to natural law
or past history. Powerful in the upswing,
there is no thought of mercy
or grace, just revenge born of spite,
a wielding of power
in an unyielding win …
what goes up must come down.
Victors become victims on the ladder
Humility is learned on the downhill side.
I’ve heard that the fingers bleed
from holding on in the fast paced decline
of that inevitable slide. Press on
but remember the law of gravity.
