Sunday Writing Prompt – Poetic Justice

Sara is our host for Sunday Writing Prompt

Welcome back to, Sunday Writing Prompt!

Poetic Justice: “An outcome in which vice is punished and virtue rewarded, usually in a manner peculiarly or ironically appropriate retribution for one’s actions.”

The KICKER for this week is, I would prefer anyone who feels inspired by this prompt to write in a poeticfashion. It doesn’t have to rhyme, but there should be a tempo, pace, a personal cadence.


You did your worst with impunity 

Thinking that no one is watching

Oppression and ridicule your weapons

Children, defenseless and innocent your victims

But there is a balance in nature

The bad deeds do catch up with you in the end

The punishment may not be visible for all to see

But you know that what you did is taking it’s toll

You can hide from others but not from yourself

It’s your own guilt that is taking it’s revenge

Poetic Justice served, no need for victims to act
