Bottom line

Can I count on karma
To punish those beyond my reach,
Who have broken no law,
But have ill-used their fellows?

I watch the corporate games,
Tally the casualties, and wonder
Why are the good people so used?
Why do their oppressors not pay?

Will the meek truly inherit the earth?
Will those who suffer be rewarded?
When all the corporate profits turn
To dust, the only real goal left to meet
Will be kindness.
