Sitting in the roots of Hell
on an excruciatingly hot ember
is, I hope, the I.T. wiz kid
who programmed
the Western Union website.
I expect this ember will etch indelibly
and painfully into his ass
or if he is a she
painfully into her curvy bum
the following observation:
“The consummate jerk
perching uncomfortably upon these words
is responsible for programming
the Western Union website
to refuse transactions
multiple times in despite of the fact
that they have been approved by the credit card company.”
I am not a cruel man,
but it is my fervent hope
that each of the 199 characters
was burned into the flesh of the above villain
slowly, with consummate care
and maximum effect.
I believe in the maxim that
an eye is worth an eye,
and an inconvenience such as I endured
is a pain in the ass.
