Embodying Karma
bear

I'm standing against
 1
a wall in
 2
INRIS posture
 3
trying to suppress
 4
the humiliation of
 5
this game.
 6
 
 
I look at
 7
all the Citizens
 8
gathered around me
 9
poking, mocking
 10
trying to bring
 11
me down to
 12
their base level.
 13
 
 
The Father says
 14
I should beg
 15
for forgiveness
 16
of theses fools
 17
but no, not me
 18
I want vengeance
 19
 
 
Why should they
 20
get away with this?
 21
Why should they
 22
not feel my pain?
 23
 
 
I am Karma
 24
 
 
I'm the force
 25
that will put
 26
every person
 27
where they
 28
deserve to be.

"surpress the humiliation of the game" -- the man had to control himself to keep from humiliating the game by barfing on the table. too much karma for lunch.

karma is just so fucking stupid...grow up.
 — DeformedLion

oi! fuck you. don't tell me to grow up. i'm a firm believer in karma. if you don't think what goes around comes around i guess you haven't been on this earth for long friend.

Tell that to the dead mother raped and killed when you get to heaven...all karma has an answer for is the attacker, who may go to jail...and all we want is vengeance...but the only thing he can give to us is his own conscience.
Is there really a balance? Or will will you say this 'mother' deserved to die.
 — DeformedLion

i thought karma gave the following answer to the mother: to be reborn and live a 'good' life?
 — unknown

yeah fine...as long as everyone sleeps well at night. I suppose thats all that matters.
 — DeformedLion

karmalized Korn, though. not anything but words, Yes, and so you have to invent the wheel of karma and the axel of transfered motion. joe lion has to say stuff about karma, cause it's his karma -- in his past life he choked on a snail at Chez Jean and chere chez la femme.
