the passive revenger

s/he hasn’t an aggressive bone
in her/his body, at least not one you
can see &
when you pass him/her on the street,
you’d thing s/he had ****ing angel
wings on her/his back,
even if, as i, you’d not believe that
such things exist
even if there was a gun barrel pressed
to your
temple---
the passive revenger puts his/her
hope in
“karma,”
believing that there is some kind of
personal boomerang which will
come flying round
after an asshole has left one’s life
to crack them upside the head
when they least expect it---
said individual things that
there is some kind of
“divine justice,”
even if they don’t put a label on it,
because they want to make things
“right,”
without getting their own hands 
dirty---
such is the sullen violence of a
coward,
such is the quiet & ridiculous nature of
a hypocrite who
tells us that they “forgive”
whilst holding the want for blood
close to their heart &
glowing like roaring red embers in
their mind.
