 “And Ahab said to Naboth, ‘Give me your vineyard, so that I may have it for a vegetable garden, because it is near my house;’” 1 Kings 21:2

before i pat myself on the back
for not stealing anyone’s vineyard;
remind me of the recognition
i yanked from a colleague;
the hope i picked out of
the pocket of a friend;
the trust i ripped out of another’s
heart when i broke a promise
