This poem depicts my feelings upon learning that a very good friend of mine’s father was molesting my friend’s sister (his daughter) for years.
Through tears I try to write about an atrocity of enormous proportions.
My whole world was changed; my boundaries of reality were torn apart.
With shock and indignant anger my soul must accept the reality as is:
My best friend’s father is the antithesis of goodness deep in his heart.

A reckoning of an account for goods long-sold;
A primal impulse;
Revenge is a dish best served cold.
