Like Night Follows Day

There will be blood
and two eyes for one

each with their wrongs
plucked from socket to scale

There will be many tall tales
snitched by neighbors hidden behind curtains

voiced in hushed whispers
betraying the wickedness of slander

There will be chaos
let loose through large cities

anarchists, cults, and mobs, oh my
what forked tongues and torches you bear

There will be apologists
parading propaganda about peace

a business, a church, a precinct in flames
no matter to smug arbiters of justice
