"Agents of Karma"

by Jeph Johnson



agents of karma
follow like bloodhounds
all the good people I know
mistaking my fate
for haphazard rebounds
of sins and misdeeds I've bestowed

Here's something I can certainly identify with! Don't know what to do with those snarling canines intent on doling out the karma. Great work, very well-written. Pat

Been in similar shoes myself. Nothing like having a pack of karma-mutts turn their muzzles in your direction and grin. Very good poem.

what we plant we reap... from lifetime to lifetime... it takes much darkness to forge a single light. eric

Jeph, I'm back, like that bad penny. Question: How can an angel as sweet as you leave a trailpf sins and misdeeds. love the penning. Fate? Karma? Whatever? your friend Linda

Have you read the lyrics to the Indigo Girls´song "Galileo"? (I think on the rites of passage album.) It's worth a read on this subject.

This is not a good thing is it? Isn't fate and Karma the same thing? Oh, wait. That's the point, isn't it?
