Societal (In)Justice - (I) Rumor

 
Itís just idle chat between pals  
Meaningless words, no big deal  
A lighthearted moment  
Silly, harmless fun, right?  
Action etched in time  
Impossible to unsay what was said  
Canít undo what was done  
Spoken words do murder on repeat  
The victim remains in agony, alive  
Face corpse white, then asphyxiated red  
You have no clue what youíve done,
But you would soon enough, I fear

Author's Note
The first in the series of poems that speak of today's culture of 'cancellation' - starting with the questionable act itself. Kabbalistic thought is interwoven into the piece, as well.
