Hi, my name is Karma.
I can see that you’ve been startled,
But I ne’er meant to alarm ya.
Truth be told, I’m most polite on any other day
I’d call you up ‘fore visiting if I could have my way
However, duty calls me to the job that I must do
I’ve come to bring harsh judgment
The recipient is you.
Pardon me, yes pardon me
So sorry to intrude
If you don’t mind, please step aside
I’m stern, but never rude
You see, we’ve met before—way back!
I was so sure you’d recall
It seems that my “familiar face”
Ain’t so memorable at all!
A cup of tea… For you! For me!
Dear sir, I’d be most grateful
Your sudden hospitality
Cloaks normal ways most hateful
What’s that, you say?
You’re not that way?
No, no, I know of you
But first, drink up
I’ll have my cup
With a splash of milk, three sugars too
“What goes around, comes around”
You must know this little saying
They claim your deeds (both good and bad) come back
Boy, they weren’t playing!
My friend, I’ve caught a whiff of your misdeeds and deviations
And since I’m judge and jury,
There’s no need for litigations
Oh dear, oh dear!
What have I said?
You’re trembling in your chair
I hate to break the news this way,
But this is only fair
You found it just to run amok,
To hurt all those you could
Well, I hate to say, but it’s not that way
My, my this tea is good!
Let me finish up, let me slurp and sip
Let me wet my tongue real fast
Then I’ll beat you up til you’ve had enough
It is judgement day… at last!
Oh, the black and blue!
Don’t ask if I’m through!
I will gladly stop when I’m ready to
Please don’t cry those tears
There’s no pity here
I’ve no mercy for the likes of you
Now my work is done
Boy, I’ve had such fun!
I so thank you for your patience
Those two black eyes
They’ll heal in time
Best be glad you’re not a patient!
For if I return, you will surely learn
To watch all the deeds you do
The things you send into the world
Always come back to you
So, I’ll take my hat, my coat, my cane
I shall go and leave you be
But the next time I come knockin’
You be sure to remember me
