Injustice Simply Boomerangs

Even as you read these words the one who hurts you writhes.
Injustice simply boomerangs and lacerates like scythes.

Even as you read these words the one who stings you smarts.
Injustice simply boomerangs and perforates like darts.

Even as you read these words the one who scorns you sighs.
Injustice simply boomerangs and aggravates like flies.

Even as you read these words the one who cheats you churns.
Injustice simply boomerangs and mutilates like burns.

Even as you read these words the one who hangs you sinks.
Injustice simply boomerangs and replicates like minks.

Even as you read these words the one who twists you strains.
Injustice simply boomerangs and dissipates like rains.

Even as you read these words the one who fouls you grimes.
Injustice simply boomerangs and imitates like mimes

Even as you read these words the one who leaves you grieves.
Injustice simply boomerangs and irritates like peeves.
