Karma Man

By Karina Bush


Living my karma

Via you


I asked to be degenerate

And life brought

Your constant dissolution


I chose my

Innate ability to harm myself

Can learn every lesson but this selfish

Drive to have the spectrum

Of intense


Like karma

My punishment memory Is long

When your time comes

Don’t cry for sympathy

You picked first

You were fully grown

You entered our vow to

Execute sufficient misery
