Vengence is mine ..............

Kind of Dark .....sorry !

The great wars between the guilt
of revenge and the painful open sores
of injustice
Are fought in private for me
once again

As I observe the luxury car littered in
chrome and the taylored suits
that change each day
The image of the rapture comes
to mind
For us

No perhaps I the victim and you
the perpetrator are not so different
You kill with the machines of
madness and profit
And I ? With the crosshairs
on your left eye

Neither of us now .....the bastard
of profit at all cost or I the beast of
Deserve better
than extinction

It is 'kind of dark' but it is also well expressed. Did 'taylored suits' have a special meaning or did you intend to write 'tailored suits'?

I felt the injustice of those who rule with power to take away the comfort of others in life. Great poem. Very profound.

Wow! Those in power create injustice for those who are not and seek justice that may become lost in revenge. Excellent.
