INIQUITY The absence of moral or spiritual values afflict we detest them when at the short end of the stick life is unfair—we are reminded—the reply quick Afraid we might not get our piece of pie even when offenders repent—apologize never really payback—just a free ride Further rankled when God’s time is not ours trapped--Sylvia Plath in her troubled ‘Bell Jar’ choosing anger over trust—restitution bizarre? How to make right when we have been wronged biblical options rebuffed whilst hate is prolonged perfect fairness not ours to harbor all lifelong God makes things right in His way and time ‘vengeance is mine’ He reminds – never sublime verdict of iniquity chastened—victimless crime

    Very nicely put...fairness is such a tough description from one point of view.

    I like the rhythm crafted in this. You drummer you. Lovely.

    Am blown away here... especially by the second stanza. We always seem to wanna be rewarded when we do something good, and think we've been duped if we're not. In reality we are rewarded (just not always in the way we expect it)... you sure do pack punches in your pieces!
