    *Thank you Sister ASP! Your piece reminded me of this one of mine I wrote a while back.*



    Well, "I've been 'buked and I've been scorned"
    But just like the majestic rose, I'm also thorned
    And subject to bristle and *****
    When those who I thought I was thick wit'
    Give me their behinds to kiss
    But I don't mind. Cuz karma also won't miss
    Them
    Down the line
    Like THEY get to assign
    One set of rules for me and another for them
    But, "old sins have long shadows" and will convict and condemn
    So me, they don't even faze
    Because ahead, lie even more days
    Of revelation and retribution
    Cuz this life can be a painful evolution
    In preparations
    For reparations
    From each of us

    But they can't see cuz
    Hindsight means facing past plight
    And giving up the fight
    To self
    While evaded hindsight produces nothing but booked blight
    Forever floundering, never quite.... gettin' it
    R
    I
    G
    H
    T
    But can always point the finger bemoaning and crying
    Another's slight
    So, hater-hate
    And holla back when you pick up ya weight....
