A 20 line rhymed poem telling a story of karma

Bully Be Banished

by smileycloud

Karma is a strange and insidious discernment
Truly an enigmatic reticent adjournment
Flaunting dark and light traits devoid of apology
Not a respecter of ranked superiority

Karma is not a time keeper nor a swift switchblade
She delivers her tirade like a caustic cascade
Dressed as a ruthless and relentless judge and jury
Down comes the guillotine full of gall and vexed fury

Do you even dare to remember your old school days?
ruling the school yard with your spiteful harrying ways
Heartlessly hounding those brainy kids, timid and shy
Chortling and cajoling till they'd shrink, cower, and cry

Well "suck it up" you towering obnoxious bullies
Giant geniuses are in laboratories
vying to save your vile bully butt from viruses
despite your past perpetual torment and curses

Perhaps or perhaps not, a little retribution
Salted with a gifted blessing of absolution
will add a conscience to a bully's befuddled brain
An acquittal out of dire pestilence and disdain
