If you dare deface my town,
I will dress you as a clown.
If you steal from the needy,
You'll be temp-tattooed 'Greedy'.
If you ditch cats in the cold,
You'll sleep where there's no stronghold.
I seek an eye for an eye,
Creatively, on the fly.
You may think that I am cruel,
But only you make you a fool.
I just flaunt your foolishness
And shame you with my wittiness.

This poem is about creative judges
who bravely risk reputation smudges
by creatively sentencing to help some learn
in life reputation is something you earn.
