Karma….Perhaps The Boomerang - Poem by James B. Earley

Careful…..what one asks for
……‘Tis often….irony’s curve
Life’s….Australian boomerang
Returning what…one deserves

We deposed and hung Saddam
Region’s only….ally of worth
That indiscretion…now we know
…..Gave rise to ISIS’ birth

Leave behind Afghan’s poppies
Relinquish….that awesome high
…..Cling fast the sobering reality
Iraqi Oil Fields….gone morally dry

Careful….what one asks for
…Oh so often…….irony’s curve
Simply life’s Australian boomerang
..Returning what..one deserves

Assassinating…Saddam Hussein
….Region’s only ally of worth
That very act……consequential
….Giving rise to serpent’s birth

Indeed beware what one asks for
…There’s lesson in irony’s curve
Karma……perhaps...the boomerang
Returning what...it thinks deserved
