When your life is ruined…
What do you do, when your life is ruined,
to those who ruined it? Revenge?
Is any retaliation possible?
Seek justice and amendment,
correction of mistakes and arbitrary wrongs?
Protest and demonstrate and join the street mobs?
No, it’s all a waste of energy and time.
The only thing worth doing
is to start again all over
patiently from the beginning,
and at best you’ll next time manage to avoid
the parasites, hyenas, brutes and hooligans,
those ignorants who did not know what they were doing.
