by Enigma

Revenge is a dish best served cold
revenge is not ours, but His (or so I'm told)
To get revenge one must retaliate
not just 'get back', but annihilate
Revenge will lead men to disregard other's lives
making children orphans and widows out of wives
Revenge can turn the tallest buildings into heaps of dust
scaring people into putting confidence in man instead of the God we trust
Revenge can turn a man of peace into one of war
Revenge isn't about turning the other cheek, it's about settling the score
Revenge can make bullets fall from the sky like rain
hurting a man to the point he can't even feel any pain
Revenge can cause people to kill, steal, and lie
attacking others and giving false reasons why
Revenge can make the calmest person go buck wild
Revenge can plant the seeds of hatred in the smallest child
Revenge isn't exclusive; what goes around comes around
it doesn't just happen on foreign soil, it can strike on home ground
One can be on top for so long and every reign comes to an end
so it's only a matter of time before someone comes this way seeking revenge.
