The Lesson Learned

It’s Quadrille Monday again at the dVerse Poets Pub; time to create a 44-word poem using the word Swift.
Thanks to Sarah Connor for hosting and getting us started.


The Lesson Learned

Sometimes things get turned around;
sometimes Karma is quick
retribution is swift
and penance lasts far too long.

If I could redeem myself with words
what I would tell you is this:

Merely listening is never enough;
I listened but I did not hear.

  1. The lesson we have to learn every day.

    it’s funny how the word “swift” pairs with other words. A swift pint, swift retribution…it’s not a word that’s used that much these days.
