Crime Begets Crime

Crime Begets Crime

Yesterday I upset a man
Too many more to mention
Revenge their simple plan
Eternal silence their intention
Hatred blinds a sane mind
Alters all our clear thinking
Lost to vengeances’ bind
Forever the darkness drinking
‘twas payback worth the time
Obsessed by hatreds musing
Now eternal lost to crime
Hatred brings its’ own losing
Obscene the thought corrupts
Justice an unheard remembrance
Years drinking from the devils’ cups
Removing all honesties semblance
Overtly the criminal justifies
Given over to their blind hatreds
Evermore revenge never satisfies
Remorse unseen vengeance never sated
Go seeking vengeance in crime dig your grave before mine.
