You said you don't get mad,
you get even.
I find that an odd stance to take.
Even if I wanted to get even,
it seems silly to expend the energy, 
when Karma will eventually take care of it.
They do say revenge is a dish best served cold.
I imagine Karma knows the best temperature,
whether it's Fahrenheit or Celsius.
Time ticks by so quickly—tick tock, tick tock.
Eventually, the clock will stop.
Life is a gift I don't want to waste in petty payback;
if Karma decides I get to witness justice being served,
I will consider it a blessing
and say we're even.
