May the ones who have wronged me
walk always uphill
in the rain
against the wind.
May their children bring home strange friends
who expect to be fed vegan food
off recycled plates
at very short notice.
May their pets run up large and interesting veterinary bills
even though they seem completely healthy
and then turn out to be pregnant
with a very large litter
of rather strange-looking off-spring.
May their bank lose their direct debit mandates
and then find them all
just before payday.
May their car decide to make an expensive noise
just before they are due to go on holiday
and may the mechanic make that tooth-sucking sound
when he is telling them about how long it will take to fix
and where the parts have to be ordered from.
May their garden grow weeds
even in the lawn
even in the patio tubs.
May some of the weeds be illegal substances
and may their neighbours rat on them to the local police.
And may they remember the wrong they have done me
and put it right
