More than just an eye May 21, 2006

An eye for an eye…your life, limb and everything else too.

Because by demanding the same that’s owed, never usually bring equity to the offenses against us. Your eye for mine will not be enough. Even the satisfaction that it brings varies, occassion to occassion. On a good day, we might be able to let the monkey slide off our back; brush it off to somewhere between vengeance and oblivion.

Other times, like I said, your eye is just not enough. That, perhaps will let us start off from the same foot…sort of level the playing field again, at which point I would then love to be at a place to exploit, take advantage and perhaps exact some form of vengeance. We hate being taken advantage of, but love getting away with things when we can, love whenever life deals us with an upper hand.

Its no wonder those laws didn’t work.
