A venomous viper

Poca à poca you crawled
I stood dumb as you fouled
The golden rules
Only heaven knows
Why I stood still and froze
As you sneered and spat
Your rancorous venom all over the place

You forced your way in
Pushed and pushed
Till everyone stepped aside for you
Only for us to be entrapped 
In your labyrinthine world of shame
Now you tightened corners of your web
Got victims
Smashed the heads of cronies together 
And spat the spiteful venom on their hearts
Oh, to us it tasted like fresh honey
Only for us to remember it was too late
For us to regurgitate 

Oh how my head hated
To see my heart find joy
In that cryptic ignominious world
Imprisoned with acerbity
As we watched your affected smile
Crack up in drops of laughter
We egged ourselves on 
Hoping your random peccadilloes
Would not cause anymore pain
For you to gain

Oh how thankful I am
To myself, my head in particular
To get you to drink your own juice
How relieving for me it is 
To se you languish in endless pain
May the nemesis of your sins 
Be everlasting
Till you are divinely purged clean
By the Almighty Himself.
