Justice is my local coffee house

Justice is my local coffee house;

Everyone waits in a loooong line to get served.

You always feel obliged to tip, because

even if you don’t believe in Karma, you probably do.

If you can find a small table to sit with a friend and commiserate–

Even if you discuss the ills of the world beyond the windows–

The day will feel more merciful.

Any righteous wrath remaining in your soul

Will wake you up again at 3 AM

Like caffeine in your blood.
