Blood For Blood

Remorse will not exist
in a world without truth.
When degradation is restitution
and forgiveness is but ceremony:
the balance of justice is weighted.
No purpose is there
to be reconciled
when payment has already been exacted:
mercy was gladly given in triumph
to amends made by a defiant heart.
These empty words I gild
they fall on your deaf ears,
because morality was never a factor.
See these formalities are only that.
Nothing left to say.
Nothing to be learned.
This is blood for blood.
