Revenge is Sweet and A Little Overdone

Pride and body
Have been maimed and marred
Only one path remains
To make life worth living
Revenge
*
Plotting every hour
Barely breaking for sleep
Notes written on shower curtains
In the finest of soaps
Used only for vengeance
*
Befriend your victim
Who may already be a pal
Unwittingly remaining
Within reach
Of the bitter grudge holder
*
A tale older than history
From back when dinosaurs
Demanded blood
For those that fell to Tyrants
And tar pits

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
