Karma has no purgatory

Show me progress, and

I’ll show you 10,000 smokestacks

billowing clouds of smoke

polluting air and water.


Show me fate, and

I’ll show you innocent families

ruined by addiction,

babies crying back of a scalding car

parents overdosed in the front.


Show me success, and

I’ll show you hapless degenerates

of multicorporate partnerships.

Cash-rich, moral-poor

miserable to the bone.


Good deeds, remorse, and generosity

are my currency,

and love my exchange.

Karma’s my name.
