Payback Doesn't Retract


Those haunted by a guilt,
And wishing it to rid...
To get themselves away,
From misdeeds done they did.
Can not admit wrongs committed,
Done to others they had dismissed.
To come to find they are the ones,
Doing their best to shake 'mistakes'...
Coming to haunt with guilt to taste.

Payback doesn't retract from the facts.
When it returns,
Effective is the message.

Payback doesn't retract,
To skip with a forgetting...
Those who attacked.
And returns with an effective message...
Haunting to stun the ones who can not relax.

Those haunted by a guilt,
And wishing it to rid...
To get themselves away,
From misdeeds done they did.
Can not admit wrongs committed,
Done to others they had dismissed.

Since a payback doesn't retract from the facts.
When it returns,
Effective is the message.
And so effective is the delivery of it.

Payback doesn't retract,
To skip with a forgetting...
Those who attacked.
And returns with an effective message...
Haunting to stun the ones who can not relax
