Schadenfreude

I've seen how mean You treat others. You're well known for stepping On the necks of those You deem beneath you. You've conveniently forgotten Laughing Over many a misfortune, Mine included. So legendary is Your cruel nature And peacock-like arrogance. You carry a baffling air Of invincibility. You think yourself Infallible; better than the rest. Or are you? Now I watch you Slip deservedly On a banana peel of poetic justice With laughter In my eyes. You hear folks You've trampled upon clap, And you don't like that? Well, what did you expect? I hate to admit I feel no guilt or pity For you and your troubles As you've taught all and sundry One true thing; You get what you give. *this is a fictional write* Date written: 06/19/2022
