  1. Private Vengeance

    I practice all my vengeance
    in words, on paper,
    setting them free
    I rarely send them anywhere else
    but keep them mostly just for me
    Oh, I could indeed well send them out
    and target those who’ve done me wrong
    Such words, I know, would find their mark
    but the satisfaction wouldn’t last as long
    Not quite as long as drawn out therapy
    in finding ‘bon mots’ repeatedly…
    For in private, they’re perpetual,
    and as spiteful as they need to be
    And furthermore,
    I’d just abhor
    an (inevitably) thought-less, witless reply…
    (like childish phrases, such as telling me to go “fuck off and die!”)
    So I’d rather gloat as I release
    my negative, pent-up energy;
    The world is full of futile efforts
    so I’ll keep these close to me...
    Yes, for now I’ll hold my secrets
    The pen is as mighty as the sword,
    but I’ve not ‘said’ a word!

    (…not yet!)

    You know I am really a fan of your poetry. Not just saying that. I truly admire your work.

    only one other consistent writer here had such dexterity, i think there name was lentil illness or something like that (no disrespect) they featured more word play and the vocabulary was vast, yet you have more flow and better descriptions. the other main difference was that they didn't target anything/one in particular, always a terrific read. naturally I favour the zip in your eelish charges of wit though, a protected english upbringing such as mine probably finds more solace in that, we always raise our game for an old enemy too. makes me think of fawlty towers, the german scene:biggrin:

    i'll put this in one of your better ones, not like that procrastination one, that sucked gravy granules:tongue:
