Getting even in Poetry


I settle scores with poetry

Of things really bothering me

For God knows how long

Nagging at my soul

I challenge and process them verbally

Put them to shame and hang them publicly

Then pack and stow them away neatly

Digitally on my poetry blog

Where their memorial may be visited

So I can have some peace again

At least until the next poem that is

Doing as the proverb says

Don’t get mad, get even in poetry
