by Nevada Kerr

I have it coming
So spare no expense
Hold the scales even
I deserve recompense

An eye for an eye
To make up for the lie
Come hell or high water
I'll get a piece of the pie

You can't explain me away
With the high price of health
Or lighten my burdens
With tokens of wealth

I was promised a free zone
And freedom from hate
An impartial jury
In a broad-minded state

A onesided law
To help me to heal
A generous reward
To undo the raw deal
