What is poetic justice?
I would like to hear your definition, and also if you could give a good example.
You ask of me, what is poetic justice?
Its something I can not see.
In everyday life, justice is corrupted,
and keeps avoiding me.
There's several flaws in the system,
just beneath the skin.
The world has forgotten virtue,
They flock like sheep to to their sin.
But it grinds at your teeth,
it bites at your fingernails,
it sits and stares at a soul,
damaged beyond repair.
We cling to our vices,
our drugs, our addictions,
not realizing these are the things,
causing our afflictions.
In a world based on justice alone,
we would all rot in jail,
but poetically speaking,
we just breathe in the smoke and silently exhale.
Eventually we all pay for our mistakes.
Eventually we all get our due.
But its not for me to judge,
What is poetic justice to you?
~Nicole Marie Jordan
When an evil man walks – for a hundred days
across the frozen plains,
carrying deep in his belt the gold coins
undeservedly in his possession, the spoils
extorted from the frightened men
the villagers from beneath the mountains
When he sings, on the last day of winter,
so gleeful for spring
tomorrow will come
equip him with riches, so safe and so dry
and when he falls on the last stretch
into hidden pockets of melting ice
And there he dies, no coin will he keep
he had his becoming, and thus we must weep
but not with sorrow, instead with joy
he met deservedly his fate, no longer so coy
the darlings shall live long, the bastards shall die
for so it is ordered up there, right behind
the doors to the halls of poetic justice
- Roman Trend
